Access freezing while queuing jobs to the printer

Discussion in 'Microsoft Access Forms' started by Etienne M. St-Georges, Dec 15, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    I have a program that's bee written with Access. In that application, there
    is a form that let you print a sequential batch of sticker, you just need to
    specify from what number to what number to print.
    The problem is that once the "Print" button has been pressed, the
    access-application freezes until the entire data is processed and printed.
    How could we avoid this? Is this because access can only manage one job at
    a time (in that cas, when the application is sending data to the printer, it
    cannot do anything else)?

    Thanks,
    Etienne

  2. Etienne,

    Wild guess, but any chance you have "Print directly to the
    rpinter" checked on the Advanced tab of your rpinter
    properties? This prevents Windows from using the print
    spooler, and makes them wait for the rpinter to actually
    print the job.
    If that's the case, try to remove it and see what happens.

    HTH,
    Nikos
