  • Hello,


    If you want to layout your VB form exactly how you want it to appear on paper and just send and image of it to the printer you can watch the short (4 minute) video that demonstrates how to do this. 


    The PrintForm video is here http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vbasic/bb643800.aspx


    The whole 'How Do I Video Series' is here:  http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vbasic/bb466226.aspx


    Both of these focus on Visual Basic 2005, not Visual Basic 6 (vb6).


    If you need vb6 help you should start with the VB 6 Resource Center here:  http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vbrun/default.aspx.


    Since you are just starting I recommend you work with VB2005 Express instead of VB6.  By using the current technology you will have many more resources to help you learn, and we are continuing to develop learning tools for it, like the 'How Do I Video Series'


    Hope that helps,
