Default Printing with default printer

hi im working on a program for a college assignment and i just want to print a few details from some text boxes. a friend of mine gave me some code eg

private sub print_click()

        Printer.Print "Order Number: " & orderNumber.Text
        Printer.Print ""


End Sub

but when i go to click print i get error message saying:

Run-time error '424':

Object required

and not being an expert on vb (i hate it but we have to use it lol) i have no clue what to do can anyone shed any light on this thanks a lot :)

If the error is in the above code, there are only two 'objects': Printer and orderNumber. orderNumber should be a valid component, otherwise you should have got a unknow variable compilation error. This leaves the Printer object, that can be Null if the user login does not have a default printer. Put a breakpoint at the first line of the above code and start with a full compile (Ctrl+F5)

...and not being an expert in English... :-)
