i am using windows xp, and i am printing from a matrix printer, so i go to file then print then on the top right of the dialog box it say properties, and i go there to change the printers speed and darkness, the i click ok to print.
I have got a buttion that changes various layout and borders for the page then shows a printpreview, after printprewiew closes.
Then a msgbox that askes if you would like print. Is there a way to change the defult printer between local printer and adobe distiller(.pdf) as a dropdown option box. Or Yes for Local printer and NO for adobe distiller(.pdf) using vbYesNoCancle.
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?
Sub Print_Button() Dim ws As Worksheet, cell As Range Set ws = Sheets("main") Set cell = Range("g2000").End(xlUp) Do Until cell.Value "" Set cell = cell.Offset(-1, 0) Loop ws.PageSetup.PrintArea = ("A2:" & cell.Address) ws.PrintPreview End Sub
I need an assistance in setting up a VBA for the default printer in my office. The issue is I want my spreadsheet to be set up to wherever I open the spreadsheet at any computers in the facility. I want the sheet to be printing out directly at the printer in my office only. Is there a way to do this?
I have a form that all the salespeople use. The last thing in the process is to print the completed form to a specific printer. I recorded a macro to get the proper name of the printer but I am finding out that it records differently for each computer. Is there a way around this?
I have a spreadsheet where I am trying to print barcode labels. The barcode is found in cell A1. I have looked in a lot of places and I can't really figure out exactly how to do it. This is the code that I have so far but it gives me an error. The printer name should be right. Some of this code I just copied from another thread.
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.
i have a workbook system that is used on 25 standalone machines that all have different printers everytime i install on a new system i have to reconfigure all of the printers that i have set up in VBA i am curious to find out as to whether or not there is a macro i can use that will generate a list of all printers on a machine that i can then use to refrence a printer name in my VBA
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.
I have excel printing some sheets to pdf and it works fine on my PC. WHen someone else tries to print it wont work because they arent on "Adobe PDF on Ne02:"...they maybe on Ne03 or Ne08 or ne05...you get my point.
I saw code on here before as to how to find the proper "port" but after a bit of searching, i cant find it again.
Application.ActivePrinter = "Adobe PDF on Ne02:" ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, ActivePrinter:= _ "Adobe PDF on Ne02:"
how to identify in code which installed printer is set as the default printer? I can set/switch printers easily enough but don't seem to be able to identify the default printer as opposed to the active printer...
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> Else 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.
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.
i have a macro that loads a userform for previewing and printing selected sheets. The macro works fine for previewing sheets but when i choose the print button the marco trys to save the file as a .mdi, i want this to select the default printer on the pc instead, the excel file will be onpened on many different pcs so the printers will be different on each machine, hence why i want a default printer selected. This is the section of code from the form
I have my buttons working, but I need too have it return to the default printer after a button is used. If I send it too PDF it will not let me print it. Is there a way too go back too default printer each time?
I am trying to swith between different printers to print out sheets within a single workbook. Recording the macro doesn't work very well and the code I found online doesn't work either (error: object doesn't support property).
How can I set this up to be a dynamic printer setting? Code I tried:
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:
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
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.
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 = "\WP010184.108.40.206"
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!
