Chapter 5. Taming Your Printer > Programmatically Control the Paper Source

5.5. Programmatically Control the Paper Source

5.5.1. Problem

You'd like to be able to print the first page of your reports from a paper tray containing letterhead paper and then print the rest on normal paper stock. Is there some way in Access to switch paper trays programmatically from within your application?

5.5.2. Solution

The paper source is one of the properties of the Printer object associated with a report (see Section 5.4.2 for a description of the Printer object) that you can programmatically control. Given the information in Section 5.4.2, it's relatively easy to change the paper source for a report so that the first page prints from one paper bin and the rest prints from another.
