    Sounds simple -- but it's not. A lot depends on your application. If it's a database application, I'd suggest using a reporting tool like Crystal Reports which provides an option for Print Preview. Otherwise, if you're using the Printer object in VB you'd have to draw your output to a form or picturebox on a form to simulate how your output will look when printed.
