How to identify in BeforePrint if choice was Preview or Print?

I am needing to run a macro AFTER printing. Since there is no AfterPrint, the only way to do this is to trap with Workbook_BeforePrint, cancel the automatic print/preview, code it manually and followup with the macro. (Excel 2003)

My problem now is knowing if the user chose Preview or Print. I've seen a few close ideas that involve CommandBar, but nothing that would say something like:
Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
Cancel = True
If the user picked PrintPreview then
end if
Run the macro
end sub

Does anyone know how to tell which was chosen and how I would code it?
