    Question Unanswered: print an invisible form?

    Hay all, hows it going? I want to send a form to the printer using windows printing dialog without opening the form first. Is this possible?

    Hi Milks,

    Although I haven't printed a Form this way you can, in the DatabaseWindow, RightClick on the Form, then from the PopUp Menu select Print from that dialog. It will print it out automatically without prompting you for any further info. I have always printed a form while it was open just the same as I would a report and have it already preformatted to my liking. Anyway I hope this helped you out with your situation.

    have a nice one,
    BUD

    yes, thats pretty simple but how can I porint an invisible form from VBA?

    Heres what Im doing:

    What I have is a form and I have a command button on it. On click of this command button I want to open the form I want to be printed as hidden, then using windows print dialog I want to allow the user to select the number of print jobs (copies) of the form they want to print.
