    I've created a form that has a PRINT command button. When the user clicks on
    the button it asks the user which report they would like to print. When the
    user types in the report and hits enter, the report is printed. However,
    it's been only printing to my printer and I need it to print to whatever
    their default printer is. My company has 3 different buildings and it's
    obviously not convenient for them to be printing to one printer. How do I
    get the report to print to the user's default printer automatically?

    Hi Connie

    Open the report in design view and go to File>Page setup.

    On the "Page" tab, select "Default Printer"

    Save the report and close it.
