    Question Unanswered: AddMenu to allow users to print screen

    I am creating a menu to print reports for users. I thought it might be useful to create an item on that menu that does a print screen of the current form they are looking at.

    I can have them use the ALT+Print Screen and then open up WordPad, paste and then print... but I wanted to know if I could choose a RUNCOMMAND in my macro that one or a few more steps would do the same thing,, so far, I have not been able to find it..

    Any help is appreciated.

    You could use sendkeys...

    Alternately you could create a parameter report or just print the form. There are more efficient ways to do this then taking an actual picture...

    I did try the SendKeys but could not figure how to make it select the ALT + Print Screen buttons simultaneously.

    I guess the problem that I am having with just a Print of the form is that it will want to print ALL records by default.. unless the user enters into the Properties of the printer and then selects the current record to print...

    I've never heard of a parameter report...
