All the Form text and/or code will be printed together on a single page if from the VB.EXE programming environment, you select one or more of the combinations listed below from the Print dialog and print to an HP LaserJet 4/4M printer using the HPLJ4 printer driver (the HPPCL5E file version 31.V1.08).

Here are the problem combinations:

  • Form & Form Text
  • Form & Code
  • Form & Form Text & Code


This is caused by a bug in the HPLJ4 printer driver (HPPCL5E.DRV version 31.V1.08).


There are two possible ways to work around this problem:

  • Print each piece of the project separately. First print the Form, and then print the Form text and/or code.
  • Use the HPLJIII printer driver (HPPCL5.DRV) with the HPLJ4 printer.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This problem has been corrected in Visual Basic version 4.0.


This problem does not occur if you do not print the Form graphic. If you print only the Form text and/or code, it will print as expected.

Selecting Current or All from the Print dialog does not effect the problem.

When an updated driver is available that solves this problem we will post that information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
