Make report print to a default printer

I'm using this code to printer a report.  But I don't want the user to have to select the printer.  Just print to his/her default printer.  How can this be done?

Here's my current code:

    DoCmd.OpenReport "rptInboundRecord", acViewPreview, , "[ID]=" & Me.txtID, acHidden
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdPrint
    DoCmd.Close acReport, "rptInboundRecord", acSaveNo

Open in new window

If you define a default printer on your system and create the report to print to that, it will also print to the default printer for your client.

Pat, I have my printer set as the default in my system.  And in the design of the report I have it set to Default Printer.  But I still get the widow to select a printer when I click print.  Maybe that is how it is supposed to work?

The DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdPrint is causing the dialog box to display. Remove that line, and if you just want to print the report:

DoCmd.OpenReport "rptInboundRecord", acViewNormal, , "[ID]=" & Me.txtID, acHidden
