    Unanswered: Not Printing

    Ok, so why is it that not all the forms will actually print out?

    I can get like the Splash Screen and just one main form to print but NONE of the other like 15 forms I have will print. The only way I can get them to print is to do a screen shot, then import it into MS PowerPoint, then print.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Other than comparing all the properties of the forms that print against those that don't, I'd also look at the "Layout for Print" property. Also, is your splash screen and main screen not based on a recordset while the others are. Not sure if that would make a difference but I wanted to throw out some ideas.

    Thanks Paul, I'll check out the properties on the forms and see. i've tried to set the page print properties to landscape but that doesn't work. so I'll check the forms themselves.

    Trek,

    I have to print the forms so the supervisor(s) can tell me what they would like to see changed in the GUI. Plus, since the DB is on a system that I won't have access to, I want to keep a paper copy of all the DBs that I do, in the event that I have to do others or show other people who cannot access the DB. This is why I print the form and all coding of the DB so that I know what form does what, commands, etc.
