Hopefully JX_Man is still around - I'm using your posted code...I'm not a VB expert, so I'm trying to figure out where to specify the printer...can I just add this line after the Dims and before the open?
pPrinterName = "\\DHCP-printserver\HPLaserJet5N"
Is this the proper way to do it? I've got it working for one print queue, but not another, and I'm wondering if I'm doing this correctly...
