Hello Gurus,

Is there a  after print event in VBA? For example I want to clear a range every time the users press the print button to print? But I need the range to clear-ONLY after the print job has ended and printing finished

Thank you

There is no AfterPrint event, but there is a workaround:

Copy this code to the Workbook module:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
    Application.OnTime Now, "AfterPrint"
End Sub

Open in new window


And this to a regular module:
Private Sub AfterPrint()
    'the code you want to run after the print event
End sub

Open in new window

HI,

pls try

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean) 
    Cancel = True
    Application.EnableEvents = False 
    ActiveSheet.PrintOut 
    Application.EnableEvents = True 
    MsgBox "Printing Done" 
End Sub 

Open in new window

I have tried the codes above.

MacroShadow's works well even if you print multiple sheets.

Rgonzo1971's is simple but can only print one sheets. if you select multiple sheets, it will only print the original sheet.

thanks guys. i also used this
