sub PortPrint
         
                  ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Orientation = xlPortrait
                    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$B5:AE102"
                    ActiveSheet.PrintOut
end sub

Open in new window


sub landscapePrint
                    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.Orientation = xlLandscape
                    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$B5:AE102"
                    ActiveSheet.PrintOut

this works great however i notice that it prints automatically.  Is there a way to have the print setup box open up where the user can select a printer and then print?

instead of

activesheet.printout

Application.Dialogs(xlDialogPrint).Show
