    Re: Application-level "Printer banding"

    As it says in the docs:



    Neither behavior is useful. KillDoc is really for cases where the user cancels printing.

    I'm trying to avoid page-break issues, as in:

    Re: Application-level "Printer banding"

    I'm less worried about quality and more worried about the other issues. To mention another one, zooming the output in a PDF viewer would also be a mess, at least for the text.

    Re: Application-level "Printer banding"

    Not really.

    KillDoc would be useless, besides the other Printer object issues I want to bypass in the first place. AbortDoc() at the API level is also a fail.

    Printers.

    Sometimes you need to print Unicode text, or perhaps you want to force a file name to a virtual printer driver (e.g. Microsoft Print to PDF") so no output dialog is raised. Both of...

    Try JetComp.exe, a utility that can sometimes compact and repair MDBs too broken for MS Access or JRO.

    Re: JRO Database File Size Limitations??

    Data pages are vacuumed of deleted data, indexes get rebuilt, identity values typically get compacted, lots of small things involved.
