Expand Your VB6 Printing Repertoire—Part I-5 : Page 5

Simple Printing with VB6
With those basics in mind, you can start an exploration of the basic printing mechanisms of VB6 with a simple project that prints strings and lines.

They both call the CreateSimplePrintout() subroutine to print the text you see on the form in Figure 4.
