I am having trouble with initialization commands to the printer for FOXPRO2.5 DOS report forms.  
the commands are preceeded with the "???" send directly to printer.  We are using a HPlj4 printer and an Epson dot matrix printer.  The user has the option of selecting the printer.  A typical printer commands reads:
??? CHR(27) + "(S16.6H0B"   && courier-condensed print
??? CHR(27) + "&L10"        && Landscape
or
??? CHR(27) + "&L0O"        && portrait
What is happening is I still get landscape when I request portrait or vice versa.  Our system does not let the individual operator to use the Foxpro Printer Setup.
