I have a VB program that produces reports through Crystal Report and I need to direct these reports to different trays.  First of all is it possible to do so? And if so, how would I go about doing it?  Because at this point I can't find anything on this. Thanks in advance.


RE: PCL,Crystal&VB

I am also trying to use VB and Crystal to use different printer trays.  My research points to PCL ESC codes used in VB.  Need to convert the symbols to decimal format to be used in VB.  The printer technical reference guide is proving useful.  Have you found any other information?

RE: PCL,Crystal&VB

What I did was added another printer,renamed, and set the default tray to what I wanted. I then called the the renamed printer to print to that tray.
