Re: [MS_AccessPros] Print Dialogue Box not printing columns correctly


This sounds like a good approach. I'll have to remember it for the future. This time I tried the module Bill suggested from Petersons. Its working well.
Thanks for your suggestion. I hope things are well in Paris. It's very hot in Arkansas.

For this sort of problem, I use a Tally table to generate blank rows in the Record Source rather than rely on code.  Your Tally table needs an integer column with rows containing values from 1 to the max number of labels on a page.  Then your Record Source looks like:

SELECT " " As PersonName, " " As PersonAddress, " " As PersonCity, …
FROM TallyTable
WHERE TallyTable.Counter <= [Forms]![SomeForm]![RowsToSkip]
SELEC PersonName, PersonAddress, PersonCity, …
FROM MyTable

Open your dialog (it must open WindowMode:=acdialog) from the report Open event - Open occurs BEFORE the record source gets loaded.  The user picks the number of rows to skip (can be zero), then clicks a button that runs code to hide the form to let the Open event continue.  In the Close event of the report, close the hidden form.

Hello Pros!

I have a report that has 2 columns that prints labels on letter size paper. I have some code in the report that lets you choose which row and column to start printing on from controls on the form to save paper if you don't use all the labels from a previous print. Here's the problem. I decided that I wanted a printer dialogue to open in case the printer needed is not the default printer so I changed the code behind the "print" button from:

DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acNormal


DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acViewPreview
DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdPrint

which opens the print dialogue box but it always starts printing on row 1 column 1 instead of whatever I specified on the form. It then shows a preview of the report which appears correctly on the screen. Here is the code on the report that works correctly if I use DoCmd.OpenReport stDocName, acNormal which prints to the default printer:

Option Compare Database
Option Explicit
Private Const TotCols As Long = 2
Private StartRecord As Long, RecordCount As Long

Private Sub Detail_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)
    If Me.Detail.WillContinue = False Then
        RecordCount = RecordCount + 1
    End If

    If RecordCount < StartRecord Then
        Me.NextRecord = False
        Me.PrintSection = False
        Me.NextRecord = True
        Me.PrintSection = True
    End If

End Sub

Private Sub PageHeaderSection_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)
    RecordCount = 0
End Sub

Private Sub Report_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    Dim StartRow As Long, StartCol As Long
    Dim FormName As String

    FormName = "frmPartMasterLabels3x4"

    StartRow = Forms(FormName)("TxtStartRow")
    StartCol = Forms(FormName)("TxtStartColumn")
    'For across then down use: StartRecord = StartCol + (StartRow - 1) * TotCols
    'For down then across use: StartRecord = (StartCol - 1) * 3 + StartRow
    StartRecord = StartCol + (StartRow - 1) * TotCols
    RecordCount = 0
End Sub

This code is from AD Tejpal. Any ideas how to tweak this to let me open the printer dialogue box and still get the correct output?
