You could write the text string to a cell, print it out using the Range.Printout method, then delete it:
Public Sub PrintText()

   Dim strText As String
   Dim rng As Excel.Range
   Dim sht As Excel.Worksheet
   
   strText = "Test string"
   Set sht = Application.Sheets(1)
   sht.Activate
   Set rng = sht.Range("A3")
   rng.Activate
   rng.Value = strText
   rng.PrintOut
   rng.Value = ""
   
End Sub

Open in new window

I don't think so, but at least this method doesn't leave anything in the worksheet.
