Dear All,

I want to prevent printing of worksheet by excel normal feature and allow only to save and print the worksheet as pdf by a command button.
Would you pls solve this problem for me. Your help will be highly appreciated.

i use the following code's but unfortunately when i put the prevent print code in workbook module i can't make the workbook saved as pdf.

Code in workbook module:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
MsgBox "Please print via [Print] or [Pdf] button"
Cancel = True
End Sub

Code in Command Button:
Sub createPDF()
Sheet2.Range("A7:M37").ExportAsFixedFormat xlTypePDF, Filename:= _
"C:\Users\User\Desktop\Save File As PDF\" & Range("C9") & "-" & Range("C10") & "_" & Range("I10") & "_" & "Biochemical_Report", _
OpenAfterPublish:=True
End Sub
