Hello CPA,
The communications protocol may not be correct between VB6 and printer. Look in the Add-in Manager for the proper printer lib. Crystal is hard to work with from VB6. I know this is not much, but have you tried using the application wizard? Also there is a lot of information on MSN @ microsoft.
