Print in landscape, form, report

Experts,

I have this form.
I have a button on it to print.
I think it is best to print a report instead of the form.

on the button of my form I have this:

Private Sub cmdPrintTheRpt_Click()

    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptStatus_TenderPerDeal", acViewNormal, "", "[ID]=[Forms]![frmStatus_TenderPerDeal]![ID]", acNormal

End Sub

Open in new window


I basically am opening the report with the same ID as the the ID on the form.  Both report and form have the same recordsource (I saved the form as a report).  

When I press the button on the form, the code above returns a runtime error 2212:  "Cant print the report."...see pic below.  I got the code from online and I am not even sure why the code executes a PRINT because I dont see any code for PRINT (only OPEN).

How can I print the report but with the Where condition?  Any better ideas are welcome.  thank you.

Try this:
DoCmd.OpenReport "rptStatus_TenderPerDeal", acViewNormal, "", "[ID]=" & Me.[ID], acNormal

Open in new window


The above would work if ID is a Number data type.  If it is Text, you would need this instead:
DoCmd.OpenReport "rptStatus_TenderPerDeal", acViewNormal, "", "[ID]='" & Me.[ID] & "'", acNormal

Open in new window

Do you still get the same error if you just try printing without a criteria?
DoCmd.OpenReport "rptStatus_TenderPerDeal"

There's your problem.  Change it to use your default printer and not a specific printer.
