I have a sheet of labels (Word 2010 document) at work and would like to be able to automatically select Tray 2 (which contains label paper) whenever I print this page. The printer is a Lexmark T644.

I'm a bit familiar with VBA code if anyone can write a macro that would do this, I could make that work.

Thanks

or:
Application.MailingLabel.DefaultLaserTray = wdPrinterLowerBin

Open in new window

You may have to experiment, because the correct setting will depend on the printer driver.
wdPrinterLowerBin is one of about fifteen WdPaperTray enumertaion constants.
