Print failure with a large number of reports

    We have a report that gets printed as soon as it runs. Here's the code that loads, runs and prints the report:


      Set dcNOCBatchPrint.Recordset = mResultsRS
      Me.Run False
      Me.PrintReport False


    This code is in a public function that is the first method called by the VB6 program. When Me.Run is called, the report is run on the recordset, then all the reports are printed. There's no error when there are a few hundred records in the recordset, but when there are about 700 records, nothing prints, and we the following error: "Printer error" number 482. We have some compelling reasons to print all of the reports and not break down the job. What might be causing the error?

    Hello ,

    Did you tried the different printers?

    It doesn't look like Active Reports's error, but i recommend you to update the Active Reports to the latest build.

    The latest build is available here:
