    Printing multiple userforms

    Hello all,

    I made a front page where the user can input several parameters and then open 3 different userforms which perform calculations. The first 2 userforms just perform calculations but on the third i have two populated comboboxes where the user can choose a device and then it will display the corresponding calculations.
    What i would like to do is print all the inputs from the front page, and all 3 userforms (with only the device selected shown). I would like to print the userforms and not copy them to an excel sheet and then print them from there. Is there a way to print all these things together?

    Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    Not sure if you are actually referring to UserForms or sheet based forms.

    If UserForms created in the VB Editor, then although i is possible to print them, he resulting print is not reallythat good. I would suggest that you have a pre-formatted sheet to post the data from the forms to, then print the sheet
    Hope that helps.

    Re: Printing multiple userforms

    I am using userforms in the vb editor. My boss really likes the way the userforms look so he would like a printout of the userforms together. Is there a way to do that through vb. If not I read some code written by Leith Ross

    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-prog...-printing.html

    2 years ago about taking a screenshot and printing it. Maybe there's a way that i can open all 3 userforms at the same time and then take a screenshot of that.

    I can't really understand why anyone would want the forms printing. See Leith's post

    Re: Printing multiple userforms

    I really don't have an idea why my boss wants the userforms printed. I just have to tell him that it can't be done.

    Now i have a question about only copying the data from the userform to a sheet. I have some conditional formatting used, can i copy that too to the sheet.
    And how to i only copy the device the user chose instead of the whole list.

    Thanks

    Re: Printing multiple userforms

    I have a simpler solution but i don't know how to do it. I can copy the sheet the has all the data and results on it to a temp sheet and then delete all the devices not used a print it out. What do you think?

    I haven't got a clue without seeing the workbook.

    You can't have conditional formatting in a userform

    i will try to upload a sample file. I didn't actually use conditional formatting, i just wrote some code that will color the textbox depending on the result compared with set value.

    Re: Printing multiple userforms

    Again i think i have a simpler soln. I can add the conditional formatting to the sheet itself and so when i transfer it will show the correct colors.
    Sorry about all the conflictions (just started using vb last week).

    Anyways is how can i copy everything from one sheet to another and then deleting a few rows.

    Hello - to copy a sheet, right click on the sheet tab, select "Move or Copy", then check the "create a copy" box. This will create a copy of the sheet and name it.
