What do you want to print? There is an internal command 'print' which will screen dump to the printer.

David,


What do U mean by screen dump to the printer?
The entire document or the part of the document visible over the screen.Just like print screen works.

You create a report and use the values that are currently being used in the 'where' clause as parameters to the report, and then run the report using these parameters. For more information search this forum for 'report'.

hi,
u can use host command.first u will be generating u'r report from form.save it to a file,as u will give in set_report_object_property-----destype,file
set_report_object_property-----desname,'filename'
run_report_object will be used.now,u'r report will be in gn filename.
then host('print ...\filename');
the ... mentions u'r printer path and printer name.

is this u need.
