I can't seem to get Office 97 to print from the Menu on a Networked Win95 machine. It will print from the tool bar and it prints O.K. on a stand alone machine. Do you know any fixes or patches that will solve this problem?

Are you changing any of the print settings when you print from the menu?  The toolbar print button is just a quick way of printing with all the default settings.  It should be the same as File -> Print with no changes to anything.

(I am assuming when you say print from the menu that you mean you are selecting File -> Print from the menu bar in an Office program.)

Agreed, the button and the menu command are the same but in different locations.  If something is not working correctly, you might want to re-install Office97.  but before you do so...

have you installed the Office97 UPDATE PATCH?
You can get it at several sites, one of which is here:

See if that helps.
If it does, please post a comment requesting that I post this as the answer---

The problem lies in the printer driver. From the workstation delete the printer driver and conduct a reinstall as a new printer. Take care to select the right driver software and media type as raw.
