Presentation.PrintOut method (PowerPoint)
Prints the specified presentation.
expression.PrintOut (From, To, PrintToFile, Copies, Collate)
expression A variable that represents a Presentation object.
|From||Optional||Integer||The number of the first page to be printed. If this argument is omitted, printing starts at the beginning of the presentation. Specifying the To and From arguments sets the contents of the PrintRanges object and sets the value of the RangeType property for the presentation.|
|To||Optional||Integer||The number of the last page to be printed. If this argument is omitted, printing continues to the end of the presentation. Specifying the To and From arguments sets the contents of the PrintRanges object and sets the value of the RangeType property for the presentation.|
|PrintToFile||Optional||String||The name of the file to print to. If you specify this argument, the file is printed to a file rather than sent to a printer. If this argument is omitted, the file is sent to a printer.|
|Copies||Optional||Integer||The number of copies to be printed. If this argument is omitted, only one copy is printed. Specifying this argument sets the value of the NumberOfCopiesproperty.|
|Collate||Optional||MsoTriState||If this argument is omitted, multiple copies are collated. Specifying this argument sets the value of the Collate property.|
The Collate parameter value can be one of these MsoTriState constants.
|msoFalse||Prints all copies of one page before printing the first copy of the next page.|
|msoTrue||Prints a complete copy of the presentation before the first page of the next copy is printed.|
This example prints two uncollated copies of each slide—whether visible or hidden—from slide two to slide five in the active presentation.
With Application.ActivePresentation .PrintOptions.PrintHiddenSlides = True .PrintOut From:=2, To:=5, Copies:=2, Collate:=msoFalse End With
This example prints a single copy of all slides in the active presentation to the file Testprnt.prn.
