Hi David.

Ouch, I somehow feared something like that. Seems like there is still a 
reason left for WinNT servers. Not for me, I'm gonna do that work around 
in VB, if I can.
But Huston, we got a problem there. If I can't configure the printers, 
I'm very limited. MAybe the apsfilter solution would be worth a try (later).
Well, most of you folks will use the US formats, in europe most will use 
the A4 with laser printers nowadays. Perhaps later in the beta phase 
something could be done about that?

In hope,
