XL5: No Line.Print() Function Equivalent in Visual Basic

ID: Q106362

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Excel for Windows, version 5.0


In the Microsoft Visual Basic Programming System, Applications Edition, there is no direct equivalent for the Microsoft Excel version 4.0 LINE.PRINT() macro function.

However, you can use the Application.ExecuteExcel4Macro command in a Visual Basic module to execute the version 4.0 LINE.PRINT() macro function.

The following code uses the LINE.PRINT() command to print the active worksheet.

   Application.ExecuteExcel4Macro ("LINE.PRINT(1)") 


The LINE.PRINT() macro function is for Lotus 1-2-3 Line Print command compatability. Use this function only if you have a specific need for the LINE.PRINT() function.

Also, the LINE.PRINT() function does not use a Windows printer driver when it is called and is not a function that is available on the Macintosh.
