I have the following vb6 code.

If MsgBox("This record has been saved.  Would you like to print?", vbYesNo Or vbQuestion, "Print Record") = vbYes Then
    Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
    frmRegistrationSYAB.PrintForm
    Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
    frmRegistrationSYAB2.PrintForm
End If

Open in new window



I get the error on line 5 "can't print form image to this type of printer"

Why is this happening?

make a call to the Printer.EndDoc method after each PrintForm method call :

If MsgBox("This record has been saved.  Would you like to print?", vbYesNo Or vbQuestion, "Print Record") = vbYes Then
    Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
    frmRegistrationSYAB.PrintForm
    Printer.EndDoc
    Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
    frmRegistrationSYAB2.PrintForm
    Printer.EndDoc
End If

Open in new window

Does the printer have the ability to print landscape?
