I would like to export from the vsprinter control to a .txt
or .doc file.  Is this possible?  I have tried to print
according to the help file directions but it does not work.
I am using VSView 1.0 with VB 3 Pro Edition. I hope you can
help me.  Thank you very much.

There is an updated VSView control on the videosoft site on the web.  Make sure you have the most recent version.  It may fix your problem.  Although you can print to a file using the VSView control, it is not in a standard format printable by other programs.  You must use the Videosoft control functions to later print the file.

Videosoft told me just today that VSView does not allow printing
"to" a file only "from" a file.  Sure isn't what their own manual
states.  I'm not sure I want to upgrade to 2.0 and the new 3.0
release scheduled for October.  Thanks for your time.
