Default PrintPreviewDialog1. Change printer option

Hello all. I use the following code activation code to print preview and then print text.

        PrintPreviewDialog1.Document = PrnLetter 'LOAD DOCUMENT
        PrintPreviewDialog1.ShowDialog() 'SHOW PREVIEW

The only problem with using the PrintPreviewDialog with a PrintDocument, is the fact that I can't seem select what printer to print too. It prints to the default Windows printer. Thus if I want to print to another printer, I first have to change the Windows default printer.

Is there a way to make the components I'm using bring up a printer dialog box just after I hit the print button on the PrintPreviewDialog1?

Thank you.

Simplicity is the key
