Visio 2013 VBA - Switching layers with a macro - Turning PRINT layer ON and OFF

I have three layers, Management, Technical and Voice.
When I switch views from Management to Technical to Voice,  I would ALSO like to be able to print that layer as well.  Currently when I switch layers.  I can see the current layer but I print some other layer.
Here is the code:
Option Explicit

Public Const LayerName_Mgmt$ = "Management"
Public Const LayerName_Tech$ = "Technical"
Public Const LayerName_Voice$ = "Voice"

Sub Management()
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+m
  '// Ctrl + M

  Dim pg As Visio.Page
  Set pg = Visio.ActivePage
  
  Call m_showAndHideLayers(pg, LayerName_Mgmt$)
  
  Set pg = Nothing
End Sub
Sub Switch_to_voice()
' switches to voice view
    'Enable diagram services
  Dim pg As Visio.Page
  Set pg = Visio.ActivePage
  
  Call m_showAndHideLayers(pg, LayerName_Voice$)
  
  Set pg = Nothing

End Sub
Sub Switch_to_technical()
' switches to technical view
' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+t
    'Enable diagram services
  Dim pg As Visio.Page
  Set pg = Visio.ActivePage
  
  Call m_showAndHideLayers(pg, LayerName_Tech$)
  
  Set pg = Nothing

End Sub


'// ----- Private Procedures --------------------------------------------------
Private Sub m_showAndHideLayers(ByRef visPg As Visio.Page, _
                                ByVal sLayerNameToShow As String)
  
        If (visPg.Layers.Count = 0) Then
          Call MsgBox("The active page has no layers!" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                  "No changes to layers will be made.")
          GoTo Cleanup
        End If
        
  '// Try and get the target layer:
  Dim lyrTarget As Visio.Layer, lyr As Visio.Layer
  Set lyrTarget = m_getLayerByName(visPg, sLayerNameToShow)
    
        If (lyrTarget Is Nothing) Then
            '// Layer not found, so don't do anything at all
            Call MsgBox("Layer: '" & sLayerNameToShow & "' was not found!" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & _
                        "No changes to layers will be made.")
            GoTo Cleanup
          Else
            '// The layer was found, turn it visible and active:
            lyrTarget.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerVisible).ResultIU = 1
            lyrTarget.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerActive).ResultIU = 1
            
            '// Turn all the other layers invisible and inactive:
            Dim i As Integer
            For i = 1 To visPg.Layers.Count
            
              Set lyr = visPg.Layers.Item(i)
                    If (Not (lyr Is lyrTarget)) Then
                      lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerVisible).ResultIU = 0
                      lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerActive).ResultIU = 0
                    End If
            Next i
          End If
 
Cleanup:
  '// Cleanup:
  Set lyrTarget = Nothing
  Set lyr = Nothing

End Sub

Private Function m_getLayerByName(ByRef pg As Visio.Page, _
                                  ByVal sLayerName As String) As Visio.Layer

  Set m_getLayerByName = Nothing
  
  Dim lyr As Visio.Layer
  For Each lyr In pg.Layers
    If (StrComp(sLayerName, lyr, vbTextCompare) = 0) Then
      Set m_getLayerByName = lyr
      Exit For
    End If
  Next lyr
  
  '// Cleanup:

So right beneath these lines:

  lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerVisible).ResultIU = 0
  lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerActive).ResultIU = 0

Open in new window

add this line:

  lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerPrint).ResultIU = 1

This will work:
lyrTarget.CellsC(visLayerPrint).FormulaU = 1

Thank you Visio Guy.  Your instruction was flawlessly lucid.  I was able to do it even in my early-morning stupor.

Oops.
Found and fixed a minor hitch.  Needed one more line of code.
    '// The layer was found, turn it visible and active:
            lyrTarget.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerVisible).ResultIU = 1
            lyrTarget.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerActive).ResultIU = 1
            lyrTarget.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerPrint).ResultIU = 1
            
            '// Turn all the other layers invisible and inactive:
            Dim i As Integer
            For i = 1 To visPg.Layers.Count
            
              Set lyr = visPg.Layers.Item(i)
                    If (Not (lyr Is lyrTarget)) Then
                        lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerVisible).ResultIU = 0
                        lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerActive).ResultIU = 0
                        lyr.CellsC(Visio.VisCellIndices.visLayerPrint).ResultIU = 0
