    Unanswered: Printing, prints the form on the screen and not the form

    I have a database that I have many forms to print, such as invoices, purchase orders, etc...

    On some client computers, it prints the screen form instead of the print form. The print form is plain black and white and are called using the
    docmd.openform "invoice",,"[invoicenumber]=" & varinvoicenumber

    Anyone run into this before ?

    I have tried the selectobject and even having one of the fields on the print form receiving the focus right before sending the docmd.printout command. I have noticed that when this is a problem, even the acpreview command does not work.

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Forms are not conducive to printing to hardcopy. I would solve the issue by using a report which mimics your form.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
