    Question

    hello,

    does anyone knows how to forward a print-job for example by word 2000 to another printer?

    Set app = New Word.Application
    Set doc= app.Documents.Open "MyDocument1.doc"
    app.ActivePrinter = "MyPrinter1"
    doc.PrintOut

    how do i forward the data that is send to MyPrinter1 to another printer "MyFax1" to add that print-job by word (MyPrinter1) to the print-job in MyFax1 that isn't send to the printer or fax etc. at that time?

    any help would be appreciated ... thanx

    So you want to forward all jobs targeted at one printer to another?

    you would have to write a printer driver to do this. I have no clue how, but i'm 99% sure it can't be done in VB.

    I'd search the web for something like this(sounds pretty common to me)
