How to: Print Query Results 

To print the results of your query, you can copy the contents of the Results pane to another Windows program, such as a word processing program, then format and print it there.

The Query and View Designer puts query results onto the Clipboard using tabs as delimiters between columns and carriage return and linefeed characters as delimiters between rows.


The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
