I have a command button in the footer of a form.  The form is Display View = Single Page.

Even though the form has several records that can be navigated to, I want to print JUST the record being displayed.  

What would the onclick code of the command button be to accomplish this?

create a report with recordsource based on the recordsource of your form then use this codes

docmd.openreport "NameOfReport", acviewNormal,, "[IdfieldName]=" & me.txtIdfield


change [IdfieldName] with actula name of the field
change txtIdfield with actual name of the control

I actually just want to print the form with the current record data included.  I realize that a report would be better looking.
