Q: Getting the printer name ...
Is there a way to access the NAME of the current printer in VB? I would be grateful if you could answer me!

A: In the registry (w95) the name of the printer is found under the key: HKLM\Config\0001\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers after the keyword Default.
If you need help by getting information from the registry you can get the file http://www.kather.net/VisualBasicSource/vb4usingtheregistry.txt

n.b. if you are using w3.x the name is in the file win.ini In vb3 you need to read the inifile. An example is on the site... Return
