    Hello PANTECH,

    The problem I see is there is no code behind the cmdPrint button. Did you post the most version of the workbook?
    Sincerely,

    You didn't copy the code for cmdPrint on the main form and you've removed the code to actually print from cmdPrint on frmPrint.
    If posting code please use code tags, see here.

    That is the latest worksheet all the code is under frmPrint.

    Added 'Application.PrintCommunication = False

    'Application.PrintCommunication =True

    Now date range doesn't work. Attached is current workbook

    Re: EXCEL USERFORM- Unable to print spreadsheet using command button

    The code to do the actual printing is still missing.

    It was commented out in the original code for the reason I said in the other thread and Application.PrinterCommunication was commented out because it's not
    available in Excel 2003.

    Uncomment the PrintOut line in this, the original, code.

    Please take another look, when I press print I now longer get the pop up for the date range. Now that worked yesterday but printing still is not working. The latest workbook is attached. Really appreciate the help. You'll get 5 gold stars if you can make this work!

    Re: EXCEL USERFORM- Unable to print spreadsheet using command button

    Still no code to open the print form.

    In design view double click the Print button.

    You'll now see this.

    This is where you need to put the code to open the userform.

    For example, this, the original code.

    I followed your instructions, now getting Run-time error '400': Form already displayed; can't show modally. When I click on debug it takes me to the code line frmPrint.Show this line is in yellow. What did I miss, attached current workbook.

    Re: EXCEL USERFORM- Unable to print spreadsheet using command button

    Why do you have this code in the cmdPrint click event on frmPrint?

    It only goes in the cmdPrint click event on the main form, frmINVENTORY.

    Made corrections to code frmPrint.Show to cmdPrint.Show. Now I get complie error: Method or data member not found. Remember I am not a professional programmer. Just messing with VBA, this is mine first userform. This is all new to me!

    Re: EXCEL USERFORM- Unable to print spreadsheet using command button

    Why did you change PrintOut, which was in the original code, to Print?
