crystal_reports thread: Changing the Printer during Runtime


Message #1 by "Vimal Bhuptani" <vimal_bhuptani@r...> on 16 Nov 2002 07:58:26 -0000
Dear Friends..

i have a small problem .. with the selection of printer..

I have 3 Printers in my System such as.

1.  Epson LQ-2170 ESC/P 2
2.  HP Deskjet 656 Series
3.  Epson LQ 300

and my default printer is HP Deskjet 656 Series..

wht i want is.. i want to print all my master reports in the 2nd 
Printer ( HP Deskjet 656 Series)

and all my Invoice / Cash Receipt / Bank Receipt etc.. in Epson LQ 
300

and all my BIg reports such as for Analysis and all i want to 
Print in Epson LQ-2170 ESC/P 2

but i can easily print.. as i have to select the printer to which 
i want to print.. as always i have to go and select.

is it possible for me that can i set up the printer HP Deskjet 656 
Series to print only for my Master reports..

and the Epson LQ 300 to print only for my Invoice

and the Epson LQ-2170 ESC/P 2  to print for analysis..

so how to do that.. as i dont want to select the printer during 
runtime... as i will already define the printer name. .and assign 
to each report..

my front end is Visual Basic..

any help is appreciated..

Thanks in advance

Vimal

Open each report (.rpt file)
Set the printer out there,
whatever may be ur preference.
Save the report (.rpt file)
Ur job is done.
