PrintJob help in CS3

I have the code below in one form, and it prints perfectly, but how can I call that Form within my project (I know exactly from which SWF I am gonna call it, and post some variables to it)
What I want to do is:

1 - Call a NEW completely independent movie (_self) named impresion.swf (the form I wanna print)
2 - I am calling that form from calculate.swf, you guess right I want to be able to just print the results from this page :)

Thanx for any help or suggestions !!!
By the way I am using CS3 and AS2

import mx.controls.Button;
var printBut:Button;
var my_pj:PrintJob;

printBut.onPress = function() {
    // create PrintJob object
      
   my_pj = new PrintJob();
    if (my_pj.start()) {
        if (my_pj.addPage(_root)) {
            my_pj.send();
        }
    }
};

Try this

import mx.controls.Button;

var printBut:Button;
var my_pj:PrintJob;
var movieHolder:MovieClip;

printBut.onPress = function() {
    if(movieHolder)
            movieHolder.removeMovieClip();
      movieHolder = _root.createEmptyMovieClip("movieHolder", _root.getNextHighestDepth());
      var loader:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();    loader.addListener(_root);
    loader.loadClip("calculate.swf", movieHolder);
};

function onLoadInit(mc:MovieClip)
{
      my_pj = new PrintJob();
    if (my_pj.start()) {
        if (my_pj.addPage(mc)) {
            my_pj.send();
        }
    }
};
