Subject: Legacy Foxpro 2.6 to VFP7 printing problem

Hi All,

I have a legacy (DOS Foxpro 2.6) system that currently prints on a dot matrix printer. My office wants to replace the dot matrix with an HP laser printer. Thing is, the old program has printer code to revise font sizes for the Dot matrix. I find that it wont work with the laser. How can I control font sizes on a laser printer from DOS?

If I can't do it from DOS, and since the legacy system is running from a DOS shell in W2K, I was thinking maybe I can send the print data to a temporary table, and have a background VFP7 application pick it up, and print.

Please help. I need a creative solution please.

Thanks,

Kim
