 Sending Text to the Printer Port

Please Help if you can.

I am an experienced VB programmer, but I am very new to the WinAPI thing, so
please bear with me.

I am making an Access 97 application that reads text files, renames them
depending on what kind of information is in them, and prints them to two or
three very high speed IBM printers.

In Visual Basic, there is a Printer Object, and a Printers Collection, but
in Access 97, there is nothing.

Is there a way of doing this?  I have seen the WritePrinter and EnumPrinters
API functions, but I don't know how to use them.

If anyone could give me some coding examples, I'd be most appreciative.
