Printing Records

Printing Records

Question:
I am writing a database program and I am using the JET DATABASE ENGINEI would like to know how to print records out of the DATABASE to my printer.

Answer:
There isn’t an automatic way to do this…normally it is done programmatically. You retrieve the data, manipulate it somehow, and then send it to the printer. Crystal Reports is pretty good at doing this with minimal effort…it is included with VB. You can also create an Access report and tell it to print from Visual Basic using OLE.
