I am using VB to change the active printer but keep getting the error "Method Printer of object Application failed".

here is the code I am using:

If var1= True Then
application.ActivePrinter = "\hoGTD6:"
End If

I know the printer path is valid because in another part of the workbook, I set a variable to equal application.activeprinter and it returned "\hoGTD6:".

Any ideas? Thanks as always.

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
