Setting Printer to User's default printer

    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.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
