The DocumentName property does not specify the file to print. Rather, you specify the output to print by calling Print method.


Functions and objects in the Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Printing.Compatibility.VB6 namespace are provided for use by the tools for upgrading from Visual Basic 6.0 to Visual Basic. In most cases, these functions and objects duplicate functionality that you can find in other namespaces in the .NET Framework. They are necessary only when the Visual Basic 6.0 code model differs significantly from the .NET Framework implementation.


The following example shows how to use the DocumentName property.

Dim Printer As New Printer
Printer.DocumentName = "Quarterly Report"
