Disable Printing in MS Access, Part 1: CTRL-P


 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will show you how to restrict printing to only using a designated Print button, thereby disabling CTRL-P and other shortcuts. We tackle intercepting key presses with VBA and setting up user controls, perfect for ensuring proper invoice marking and report management. This is part 1 of 3.

Lorenzo from Downers Grove, Illinois (a Platinum Member) asks: I have a user that likes to hit CTRL-P to print reports instead of using my Print button which also runs code to mark invoices as having been printed. I've already disabled the Ribbon and the right-click menu using the techniques you've shown in your Security Seminar and Developer classes. However, is there any way to disable CTRL-P and force him to have to use my Print button? I still want to allow them to preview a report before printing it so they don't waste paper, but I want to force them to use my Print button.
