In Microsoft Project, when you use the Macro Recorder to record the action of clicking the Print button on the Standard toolbar, the following macro command is recorded:

   FilePrint Copies:=1

When you run the macro that contains this code, the Print Options dialog box appears. This is the same behavior you will receive if you click Print on the File menu. However, it is not the same behavior you receive if you click the Print button on the Standard toolbar.


To work around this problem, edit the macro code and replace this code:

   FilePrint Copies:=1

with this code:

   FilePrint FromPage:=1


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the versions of Microsoft Project that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
