Hi - I was wondering how do I retrieve the printer selected by the user in the excel vba printer dialog box (Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPrint).Show)?

There are multiple reports to print out and I only want the user to have to select the printer once.

Thanks - Zack

Application.ActivePrinter  seems to be what you are looking for.

Does that change if the user selects a different printer in the dialog box?

Yes, if they had selected the printer and hit "ok".

I don't know the exact point in which it updates the variable.  As in I don't know if as they are scrolling though them if it changes.
