FactoryTalk View SE - Printing Displays

Hello,
I am trying to print a HMI display page. I've attached a .png of the display I am trying to print named "MPM_Print".
I'm using VBA to execute a PrintDisplay command: (See Attached "MPM_Print VBA").
Private Sub PrintPage_Change()
If PrintPage.Value = 1 Then
ExecuteCommand "PrintDisplay MPM_Print"
End If
End Sub
I keep getting the following error:
"The command 'PrintDisplay ' is ignored when issued from the development environment or an HMI Server." (See Attached "MPM_Print Warning")

Any suggestions on how to fix this warning and get the display to print?

Cheers.

You are running this VBA script on a FTV SE Client right?
RA KB (279647 & 453253) states the command PrintDisplay will not run from Development or SE Server.

Ignition has buttons by default to do just this for alarm and trend displays. Print the display, save it to CSV files, Email it...
/Not missing FTView SE/ME AT ALL!

Just as the warning says "The command 'PrintDisplay ' is ignored when issued from the development environment or an HMI Server."
Once I ran the client file and toggled the bit in the PLC to Print the display everything worked!
