I'm followig the WROX publication "Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition Start Kit"
Chapter 11 It's printing time! seems like it will be my first port of call.
I'll watch this space to see if you have any replies that may also assist me. If I get and understanding before you have any replies then I'll forward you what I can.
Which text book are you working with ?
