Hi,

You have two ways to accomplish this . . .

1. The fully automatic ways. In this way you pre-set in code
to the correct printer first so that the user cannot by mistake
select the incorrect printer and print the report.
SET PRINTER TO NAME ("MY HP 550X LaserJet")
REPORT FORM rptMyReport.frx TO PRINTER


2. The user select way. In this way you popup a dialog
window for the user to select the correct printer out of.
LOCAL lcGetPrinterName
lcPrinterName = ""
lcGetPrinterName = GETPRINTER()
IF .NOT. EMPTY(lcGetPrinterName)
    SET PRINTER TO NAME (lcGetPrinterName)
    REPORT FORM rptMyReport.frx TO PRINTER NOCONSOLE
ELSE
    Wait Window "Print Job Cancelled!" TIMEOUT 3
ENDIF
