Sub CommandButtomln13_Click()
    Dim fileOK As Boolean
    Dim sPrinter As String
    With Application
        sPrinter = .ActivePrinter
        fileOK = .Dialogs(xlDialogPrint).Show
    End With
    If fileOK = True Then
       Application.ActivePrinter = sPrinter
    End If
End Sub


I have the above code under a button click sub. The purpose is to print the particular userform (the button is on)

I am showing printer dialog in an effort to switch printers should it be required. However, its not working. Regardless of what printer I choose, the userform is being printed on my default printer.

Any help is appreciated (no API calls please as user could be 32/64 bit)
