I just got signed up with stamps.com and purchased a Dymo LabelWriter 4XL and I'm hoping to automate printing my labels.    Does anyone know how I can use VB6 to print labels?

Haven't tried this control but there should be an exposed class/object that would allow you to create instances from that class and then use the available methods, properties, events from that class.  There should be help file availabe that documents that necessary class(es) and methods needed to use the LaberWriter object.

...in other words, what you need exactly to automate that special printer is some kind of API that would be compatible with VB6 and that API should be provided by the maker of that printer so it could probably be found on their website.
