Default Printing Issue When Using A Table

Hello All


I have a document set up that I want to use for electronic case notes. It is created in Word 2003 and has a table inserted into it with columns for date, case notes, hours completed and a next reporting date.

I want to be able to print the document each time I meet with a client. If the page is not full then I want the print to commence where it left off on the page last time.

I did have this set up for Office 2000 Professional and had it working fine if I clicked on the outside of the table and highlighted just the section I wanted to print. It would automatically print just that section of the document and in that specific location on the page. This would allow me to meet with a client two or three times and print the case note without having to use/waste paper.

Can anyone direct me to the specific print settings that I should use. I am using an HP printer but am also networked to a Minolta Copier/Printer.

Thanks for your help!
Kiwi

Hi Kiwi,

AFAIK, when printing just a part-page selection, all versions of Word start printing from the top of the page by default.

To be able to start printing from somewhere lower down on the page implies temporarily making the preceding text white (so that it doesn't print), then changing its colour back afterwards. That would require a macro that intercepts the print command.

Do you still have the Word 2000 version of your case notes template?

Hello Paul

Unfortunately I do not have the Word 2000 version of the case note. I have recorded macros before but only very simple ones for specific text. I will give it a try and if I cant get it I will re-post.

Thanks so much for your help.
Christine

Hi Paul

Clearly I dont have it :-( I have tried a couple of times to create the macro and it is not working for me. I can get it to change the text colour but it also changes the new text that I am trying to print. I have to be able to create something that is very simple so that it is not confusing to other users..... or me :-)What we are trying to get is a version of electronic case notes that the Ministry will approve but that is not going to cost our non profit agency additional money... something that we dont have.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
Christine

Hi Christine,

I think this one would be beyond the macro recorder's capabilities. Try the following:
Code:
Sub PartPrint()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim RngPrn As Range, RngClr As Range
With ActiveDocument
  Set RngPrn = .GoTo(What:=wdGoToPage, Name:=.Range.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber))
  Set RngPrn = RngPrn.GoTo(What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="\page")
  Set RngClr = RngPrn
  With RngPrn
    .End = Selection.Range.Start
    .Font.Color = wdColorWhite
  Application.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage
  End With
  .Undo
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
For installation instructions, see: http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm

If you add the macro to Word's 'Normal' template it will be available for use with any document. To use, simply press Alt-F8 and choose 'part print'. It will only print the current page and any type preceding the current insertion point will not be printed (unless you've got a coloured paper and white ink!)

Hello Paul

After a VERY long time the Ministry has finally approved our electronic case notes. I have the template set up in a table in word. I have installed the macro and the text part of the macro works fine when I do the printing however I have an issue where the table lines are printing again. They are not being turned white as the text is when I run the macro. Is there a simple fix for this? I would like to delete the table lines but unfortunately I am not able to do that.

Thanks so much for your help!
Christine

Hi Christine,

Try the following revised code:
Code:
Sub PartPrint()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim RngPrn As Range, RngSel As Range, oTbl As Table, oCel As Cell, i As Long, j As Long
With ActiveDocument
  Set RngPrn = .GoTo(What:=wdGoToPage, Name:=.Range.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber))
  Set RngPrn = RngPrn.GoTo(What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="\page")
  Set RngSel = Selection.Range
  With RngPrn
    .End = RngSel.Start
    .Font.Color = wdColorWhite
    For Each oTbl In RngPrn.Tables
      For Each oCel In oTbl.Range.Cells
        For j = 1 To oCel.Borders.Count
          oCel.Borders(j).Color = wdColorWhite
          i = i + 1
        Next
      Next
    Next
  Application.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage
  End With
  For j = 1 To i
    .Undo
    If RngPrn.Font.Color <> wdColorWhite Then Exit For
  Next
  RngSel.Select
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Hi Paul

We are almost there (Well you. It is your hard work that has done this). What I have is case notes in a table. I need the table to print along with the case notes. With the original macro the table was printing each time the paper was inserted into the printer and the only text that was printing was the part after the insertion point. I need for the table lines to print after the insertion point too if that is possible.

Thanks again for your help. This is going to make my job so much easier rather than having to hand write everything.

Have a great day!
Christine

Hi Christine,

Another version for you to try:
Code:
Sub PartPrint()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim RngPrn As Range, RngSel As Range, oTbl As Table, oCel As Cell, i As Long
With ActiveDocument
  Set RngSel = Selection.Range
  Set RngClr = .GoTo(What:=wdGoToPage, Name:=RngSel.Characters.First.Information(wdActiveEndPageNumber))
  Set RngClr = RngClr.GoTo(What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="\page")
  With RngPrn
    .End = RngSel.Start
    .Font.Color = wdColorWhite
    If RngSel.Characters.First.Information(wdWithInTable) = True Then
      For Each oTbl In RngPrn.Tables
        If oTbl.Range.End < RngSel.Tables(RngSel.Tables.Count).Range.End Then
          For Each oCel In oTbl.Range.Cells
            For i = 1 To oCel.Borders.Count
              oCel.Borders(i).Color = wdColorWhite
            Next
          Next
        Else
          For Each oCel In oTbl.Range.Cells
            If oCel.Row.Index < RngSel.Rows.First.Index Then
              For i = 1 To oCel.Borders.Count
                oCel.Borders(i).Color = wdColorWhite
              Next
            End If
          Next
        End If
      Next
    Else
      For Each oTbl In RngPrn.Tables
        For Each oCel In oTbl.Range.Cells
          For i = 1 To oCel.Borders.Count
            oCel.Borders(i).Color = wdColorWhite
          Next
        Next
      Next
    End If
    Application.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage
  End With
  While RngPrn.Font.Color = wdColorWhite
    .Undo
  Wend
  RngSel.Select
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Default Printing Issues When Using A Table

I have been using a macro for a part print of a document when using a table. It worked fine until I found that one of my client files went onto a second page. It will only print the first page. I know the line of the macro that needs to be change...

Application.PrintOut Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage


but I am not sure what I should be changing it to. Any help would be awesome.

Thanks so much!
Christine
