Embedding PostScript commands in Word doc

I'm manipulating a Word doc using COM, and I want to send a PostScript command to the printer.

{PRINT "<</Staple 1 /StaplePosition 2>>"}

It just prints out the text within the {}

The printer manual has "setpagedevice" after the given text.

Sorry this is a basic question about PostScript but I have a deadline!

you should check the driver you are using for printing, and also how is your driver managing TT fonts, i think the driver is taking that as NORMAL text.

also be sure you are using a PRINT FIELD and not only enclosing the command between the {} (just putting it between those does not make it a print field)

you have to go to Insert/Field.../Document Automation/Print


and then modify your print field.
