Prints Multiple Copies of Inv Upload Images   Link  
Ramona Woitas

I first created my invoice database from watching your videos (Which I love BTW), to use for my husband's business.   My invoices are quite complicated compared to what you had showed us in the video, so I had to figure out how to modify it.  And I did, with a few gliches (Giving myself a little pat on the back. lol).  However, I have had this problem for a few years, and I can't figure out what I did wrong.

When I go to print the invoice from InvoiceF, and I click the preview invoice button (in Footer), my Current Invoice is displayed.  Perfect! (One would think - But Ya No)

When I click on the Print button, it will print multiple copies of the same invoice, and I never know how many it is going to print.

My easy work around, was just to specify to Print Page 1 to Page 1.  It would be really nice to know where I went wrong.
I'm guessing it has something to do with my report!

My Previous Invoice Button (In Footer) on my InvoiceF - This is my code:

DoCmd.OpenReport "InvoiceR", acViewPreview, , "InvoiceT.InvoiceID=" & InvoiceID

- My InvoiceF is showing record 1 of 1
- InvoiceR is showing Page 1 of .... (Always has a different number of pages)

Sounds like your Record Source (query?) has more than one record in it for that specific InvoiceID. What does the query look like? If that's the case, aggregate your query results first OR enclose the invoice details inside a grouping level.

All Fields for these tables
InvoiceT *  InvoiceDetailQ *  CustomerT *  LocationDetailT *

And InvoiceID code is  Forms!InvoiceF!InvoiceID

Then you need to group them by InvoiceID somewhere... either in the report, or in another query.

Check out your printer properties to make sure that didn't get changed.

Go to an invoice and print it.  When the printer dialog comes up click "Properties"
On the Advanced tab make sure the Copy Count is set to 1.

This is my printer.  Yours may look different.

Ohhhhh.  I didn't think the printer could be a problem Scott.  Usually the problem is something I did wrong.  Thanks for letting me know.  :)
