-to specify number of copies:

WordObj.FilePrint Background:=0, AppendPrFile:=0, Range:=0, _
      PrToFileName:="", From:="", To:="", Type:=0, NumCopies:=2
0
 
OP_ZaharinCommented:
-if you are using Word 97, use the the following code instead:

WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False, Copies:=2
0

tried to do this

Dim WordObj As Object
    Dim NCopies As String
    NCopies = InputBox("Please Enter Number of Copies to Print.", "Qty to Print!", 1)
   Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
   WordObj.Documents.Open DLookup("TowAwayFormLocation", "tblCompanyInformation", "[CompanyID] = 1")
   WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False, Copies:=NCopies
   WordObj.Quit
   Set WordObj = Nothing

Open in new window


only thing that does is print one copy still, and using A2003

OP_ZaharinCommented:
- declare NCopies as integer instead:

Dim NCopies As Integer

OP_ZaharinCommented:
1-alternatively, you can put the print module into a function:

Public Function PrintDoc(FileName)
    Dim WordObj As Object

   Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
   WordObj.Documents.Open DLookup("TowAwayFormLocation", "tblCompanyInformation", "[CompanyID] = 1")
   WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False
   WordObj.Quit
   Set WordObj = Nothing
End Function

2- then create a print button and put the following codes which call the print function in a loop:

Dim NCopies as integer
Dom Copies as integer

NCopies = InputBox("Please Enter Number of Copies to Print.", "Qty to Print!", 1)

For copies = 1 to NCopies
      PrintDoc("Full Path to the file")
Next copies
0
 
OP_ZaharinCommented:
- you need to do a bit of code tuning there as the sample i used if you have a file to print. sorry about that

OP_ZaharinCommented:
- try this instead:

Dim WordObj As Object
    Dim NCopies As integer
    Dim Copies As integer

    NCopies = InputBox("Please Enter Number of Copies to Print.", "Qty to Print!", 1)
   Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
   WordObj.Documents.Open DLookup("TowAwayFormLocation", "tblCompanyInformation", "[CompanyID] = 1")

      For Copies = 1 to NCopies
            WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False
      Next Copies

   WordObj.Quit
   Set WordObj = Nothing

im not understanding what you are trying to explain to me here?

OP_ZaharinCommented:
- ignore my comment on ID35177926.
- what I'm trying to explain in my comment on ID: 35177947, is to loop the printing command "WordObj.PrintOut" (since the Copies:= didn't work for you)

This code works


Dim WordObj As Object
    Dim NCopies As integer
    Dim Copies As integer

    NCopies = InputBox("Please Enter Number of Copies to Print.", "Qty to Print!", 1)
   Set WordObj = CreateObject("Word.Application")
   WordObj.Documents.Open DLookup("TowAwayFormLocation", "tblCompanyInformation", "[CompanyID] = 1")

      For Copies = 1 to NCopies
            WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False
      Next Copies

   WordObj.Quit
   Set WordObj = Nothing



but i am guessing this would be the only way is to make it print 3 different times? tiring to get it to show as Pages 2..., sense this is used in a heavy office environment and printing is done by multiple people

OP_ZaharinCommented:
- yes you are right. the loop is actually sending a print command 3 times instead of supplying the information to print it 3 copies.

- can you try to change the  "WordObj.PrintOut Background:=False" to "WordObj.PrintOut Copies:=NCopies" to see if it works.
- and also remark the "For-loop" and "Dim Copies As integer"
