Using the Application.Printers collection, I can get  the Printers Bin number.
I also found a way to get the bin descriptions using: "Declare Function DeviceCapabilities Lib "winspool.drv"......"

But I need to get the currently selected printers default bin "text" (or description).

For example "Automatically Select","Manual Tray 1","Printer Autoselect" etc... Depending on what is selected.
In the image below, I want to get "Tray 2", since it's been selected.
