The below code opens up the printpreview window. This does not allow to select the correct (or change) printer it will automatic use the default printer.

Is there a way for the code to open the print window so I can change the printer and select number of copies?

Set ws = Sheets("main")
Set cell = Range("g2000").End(xlUp)
Do Until cell.Value ""
Set cell = cell.Offset(-1, 0)

Choosing A Printer

Jun 6, 2007

I want the user to be able to choose a printer but not print at that time.

1. Store the active printer as a variable using application.activeprinter
2. Have a dialog box (the printers available) popup and have them choose one, then store that

3. I know how to do the rest, but I will have the word document print out with the selected printer, then use the application.activeprinter reset to the original one

Way To Set The Printer's Properties Using VBA

Oct 16, 2007

Is there a way to set the printer's properties using VBA?

Sometimes we set the printer for BEST quality to do photos or brochures. Well if we don't change it back, when we go to print a spreadsheet, it takes forever because it is set on best quality.

I want to be able to set the print properties to normal using VBA.

Printing To A Cute Pdf Printer

Feb 5, 2009

how to automate the printing of Excel sheets each with a different name to a Cute pdf printer?

I have a VBA procedure which uses Windows API calls to write to a system ini file (which I understand is a necessary requirement of the Cute software), which loops through all the sheets I need to print, and sends them one by one to a Cute pdf printer. However each time the 'print' instruction is invoked - I say print but of course this is really a file save process, the Save As dialog box pops up asking the user to confirm the save.

What I want to achieve is the file gets saved automatically, with the relevant sheet name with no confimation dialog box.

Ask User To Select A Printer [{}]

Jan 2, 2007

I have a file for which I wish only selected pages to be printed, so I have disabled the print function in the ThisWorkbook module. Instead, the user chooses from a menu of available sheets to print, via a user form, and then requests the print.

I've got most of this sussed in my mind, but the users need the option of which printer to use (loads of networked printers available and the choice will depend upon monochrome for draft print or full colour for final print), so I want to be able to call up the printer dialog box using


I want all the options on the dialog box disabled, except for the choice of printer as clicking OK after choosing the printer adds the active sheet to the list of items to print.

Choosing Specific Printer In Vba

Jun 16, 2007

In my program I want some labels to be printed on printer P661 (black/white) and other labels on printer P656 (color).

Q: is it possible to do this in vba for my code?

The labels are made in Word and printed from within Excel.

Dim oWord As Object
Dim sPath As String
Dim iCnt As Integer

sPath = ThisWorkbook.Path & Application.PathSeparator & "NACL_LABEL.doc"

iCnt = Val(InputBox("Hoeveel exemplaren?", "NACL_LABEL", 1))

If iCnt >= 1 Then

Set oWord = CreateObject(Class:="Word.Application")

With oWord.Documents.Open(sPath)
.PrintOut Background:=False, Copies:=iCnt
.Close False
End With

oWord.Quit False
End If

Set oWord = Nothing
End Sub

The specific printers in the network are:

Color ---> "\PlantijnP656 op Ne00:"
Black/white ---> "\plantijn2000oldP661 op Ne02:"

VBA Code And Cutepdf Printer

Jun 2, 2006

I'm trying to save excel files as pdf using vba code and the cutepdf printer. If I do this manually it works, but when I write code it saves the output to a file that cannot be read or opened

Unfortunately I don't have access to the pdfdistiller so can't use this technique which I've seen described in a number of forums.

The code I've used is below.

[PHP]Sub pdfing()

Dim cntTrue As Long, cnt As Long
Dim rng As Range, bk As Workbook
Dim fName As String
Dim WB As Workbook
Dim FundName As String

Workbooks.Open ("S:SRQFSFCWNames")


FundName = ActiveCell.Value

fName = Dir("S:SRQFS" & FundName & ".xls")
Do While fName <> ""
Workbooks.Open ("S:SRQFS" & fName), UpdateLinks:=0
cnt = cnt + 1
fName = Dir()
Application. ScreenUpdating = False

ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ActiveWorkbook.LinkSources

Install Network Printer Via VBA

Jul 26, 2007

I have a new workbook that needs to be printed to a specific printer regardless of who the user is. I am happy with the method used for doing this using the PrintOut function, but am trying to work out what to do in the event that the user does not have this printer installed. The logic, not in true VBA syntax, is as follows;

' Check Printer
If <This Printer> Is installed Then
Printout using <This Printer>
Install <This Printer>
Printout using <This Printer>

I found a useful post about ascertaining whether or not a printer is installed, but can't find anything about actually installing a printer via VBA.

Print To A User's Default Printer?

Feb 17, 2009

Is there a Macro to automatically print the selected print area (print area is also established within the macro itself) to a user's default printer; whatever that printer may be? Note that this printer and/or printer name could change depending on the user.

I would like this to actually select and print to the default printer without Excel having to ask you. I don't even want the "OK" box to show up if possible. I just want them to run the macro, execute all it's duties, and print, all in 1 shot.

Bring Back Complete Printer Name

Nov 12, 2009

create an array of active printers. I edited the code to write the array to a range, then populate a data validation list with the printer names. All works great. The goal was to select a printer name from the list and run a macro to print some sheets. However, the function doesn't bring back enough of the name to do this. how to edit the function to bring back the whole name.

For example: after running the function the 1st printer returned ="\rizzoHQ-ENG-04"...when i record a macro to print to this printer it needs ""\rizzoHQ-ENG-04 on Ne05:". Here is the function unedited, I bolded the part i think is controlling the name:

Print To Papersize A3 Or A4 To A Printer With Different Trays

Mar 6, 2014

I have done a userform which allows the user to select printing to each section(All, A, B or C) of the report to either paper size A3 or A4 looking something like below -

Print All A3 A4 (these buttons are option buttons)
Print A A3 A4
Prtint B A3 A4
Print C A3 A4

I have coded and part recorded a macro to change the paper size to either A3 or A4 depending on the user's selection.

The problem i have is if i take out the print command, it seems to change the paper sizes as it should but when i print it prints to the same size as the previous print i did, regardless of what was selected on the userform.

I have a printer with multiple tray sizes, and since I need to change paper sizes, I assume i need to change trays as well.

Below is the two macros -

'''''''''''''Set Print area and print to A3'''''''''''''''''

Private Sub PrintAllA3_Click()
Dim LastRow As Long
Dim LastCol As Long
With ActiveSheet
LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
LastCol = .Cells(2, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
End With

Print Macro To Send To PDF Printer

Apr 8, 2009

I want to automate (with the click of a macro button, or hot key sequence) is to:
· take a pre-set print area (which is always the same – 1 page wide x 1 page tall)
· send to the printer
· select the PDF printer from the list (not the default printer for the computer)
· Automatically change the save PDF file name to “(Cell A1) – Weekly Update – (Today’s Date).pdf”
· Change location to save file on Desktop

Feels like a pretty lofty goal for a macro to do all of that – please let me know if that is even possible to set up.

VBA Code To Print To Specfic Printer

Apr 22, 2009

I have a macro that prints out several worksheets. My problem is that I want to print these worksheets to a specific color printer. There are many different users and most of them will have a black-and-white printer setup as their default. I want to be able to print using the ip address of the color printer.

I have tried setting the active printer using:

Application.ActivePrinter = "\WP010110.117.3.36"

with little luck... This seems like such a simple thing! I have done a lot of research and can't find a good solution although I have seen the question raised several times!

Ozgrid has been a great source of information and solutions in the past. Please help again!
