[Samba] Printer Issue with Access XP

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with printing on a samba shared printer from Access XP 

This issue has already been reported twice on this list but never 

We are experiencing a strange problem using Microsoft Access XP 2002 to 
create a report when the default printer is set to a network Samba 

We have already tried setting 'default devmode = yes' on the printer 
within smb.conf, but without luck.

We have found that we can set the default printer on the workstation to a 
locally stored printer definition and then start the Access Report 
Designer, and print to the Samba printer by changing the printer at the 
time of print, but this is a rather long way around.

Does anybody went further in the resolution of this problem?
