And you want to do this from a "VB 6.0" database? What exactly is a "VB
6.0" database? VB can access database from any number of sources.
Although it has a data manager, the databases that it creates are really
Access databases. It sounds to me like you want a "canned" approach to
this such that you dont really have to code much, eh? :)
Most report writers will give you this kind of control. Try Crystal
Reports. If you want to get your fingernails a bit dirty, you could do
this yourself with the "Printer" object, though. If your needs are not
large (just printing text at specific locations on the page) it should
not be very difficult to do - even for a beginner.
