I recently upgraded to Windows 98 & now I cant print anything from Microsoft Publisher 97. All I can print out is garbage. Other programs print fine. Is Windows 98 & Publisher 97 compatible?

I run Windows 98 with Publisher '97 with no problems.
The printers I use are a Kyocera 1500 & HP 690C - both work ok!

I would re-install Publisher and make sure your printer is setup properly with Pub print setup

Sorry guys, already have tried all suggestions. The printer is a Canon Multipass C2500.

Canon posted new drivers for the Multipass units on their website in late September.  That's www.ccsi.com
You won't be able to print until you install them.
