Dear Experts,

I have a stream which contants the XML document and is transformed using XSL and now i want to send it(stream) directly for printing to my default printer.
I am using Microsoft dynamics NAV, which is very similar to VB 6 but not that much flexible.

Regards
Brij

brijbmishra,

See the info in this link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Access_Coding-Macros/Q_24312909.html?cid=238#a24117642

Add the published code:
Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long

Public Sub PrintFile(byval sFile as String)
    Call ShellExecute(Application.hWndAccessApp, "print", sFile, "", "", 0)
End Sub

...To a Module then call the *SUB* (PrintFile) passing in full pathname.
Like so:
   
    Call PrintFile("C:\YourFolder\YourFile.abc")

This will print the file.

;-)

Also please remember that printing the document and printing the pdf will result in the exact same output.

So in may cases, unless you need to save the data as PDF, you print the report but save it as PDF as well.
