The problem is that I cannot seem to find a font that will print it correctly. I am using the IBM proprinter XL driver, and have tried using all the courier fonts, MS sans, Foxfont etc.. Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone using application that print to dot matrix printers?

I also need to print through DOS to a dot matrix printer because of the volume of my printout and I cannot use a laser printer. I have a printing program in Clipper. When run alone, it works fine of course. But when I ran it with the RUN command from VFP, it cannot find the table that it needs to use. However, if a table or a variable is not needed it works fine too. What gives?

Rank,
Have you tried using Clipper's way in VFP like SET PRINT ON/SET DEVICE TO/?/?? combinations? I think it will still work and should have the same approximate speed if not exactly the same. The downside is, you cannot have a print preview without the price of extra codes. It's up to you to deem which area weighs heavier than the other. Goodluck.
