Print Selected Record

    I have a form that is larger than 8.5" and the area of the form that contains
    the information that I want to print is less than this -- how can I print the
    selected record (using File --> Print) only on one 8.5 x 11 page without all
    the other "junk" (buttons on the right of my form which don't need to print
    but will print on page 2).

    Make sense?

    The best approach in these cases is to simply layout and build a report.

    Reports are actually for being printed, and thus you can have things like
    page number, or all kinds of things that make no sense at all on a form.


    forms = good idea for data entry
    reports = good idea for printing

    The trick is thus to build/layout the report the way you want. Then, place a
    button on your form, and have that button RESTRICT the report the ONE
    CURRENT record. The following code will do this

    me.refresh ' write current record to disk (so report can use data)

    docmd.openReport "YourNiceReprot",acviewPreview,,"id = " & me!id

    The above assumes your current record does have a primary key of id (most
    table do have this....but, if you used something different, then change id
    to whatever you used for the primary key of the record).
