That sounds more than a little suspicious.
What sort of setup do you have?
Samba ==> CUPS?
Raw print queue or the CUPS driver?
I have had some issues printing reports from Access to some of our 
printers that claim to be PCL6 compatible ( and have PCL6 drivers ), but 
only work with the PCL5 drivers.

What happens when you try to print?
