    printing invoice in DOT MATRIX PRINTER (USB ) in VB6

    I am developing a sample project in Visual basic 6 and MS Access 2003.

    1. I wish to print Invoice in Continuous statonery (Roll Paper ) width of paper 5.5 inches
    I am using printer.print Code using (x,y) co-ordinates

    My problem , after printing one bill printer skips and giving lot of space between two bills. My aim printer must stop printing after completing one bill. ( no gaps required ) and user tear off that bill and continue to print next bill.

    I am printing invoice in DOT MATRIX PRINTER (USB )

    My code is
    Code:
    Dim cy As Long
    Dim cx As Long
    Dim cx1 As Long
    Dim tmpval As Double
    
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    sql = "select * from del_head where tran=" & Trim(txtcustno.Text) & ""
    rs.Open sql, CN, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic
    If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
    
    cno = rs(2)
    custname = rs(3)
    ctown = rs(8)
    
    Set rs3 = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs3.Open "select sum(amountdue)-sum(amountrec) from receipt_d where cid = " & cno & "", CN, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic
    custdue = rs3(0)
    rs3.Close
    
    
    Printer.Font = "Arial"
    Printer.FontBold = True
    Printer.FontSize = 12
    Printer.CurrentX = 3400
    Printer.CurrentY = 50
    Printer.Print " XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX "

    Re: printing invoice in DOT MATRIX PRINTER (USB ) in VB6

    EndDoc commits the printing to the printer and if I am not mistaken also sends a form feed. You may be able to configure how far the printer advances using the printer driver supplied for the printer.

    You would have to have some space between the two in order to tear off without tearing off some of the text
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.

    Check the Form Length in the Printer Properties.
    If you can, change the form length to 1 (or 0)
    In this way the Form feed won't space the paper too much
