How to save printing options of Word 97 in Windows 2000

Hi everyone,

In Windows 2000 professional/server,  the Office 97 Word, tools > envolope and labels > options > printing options > Feed Method (after a print job done then the setting gone).  How to keep the setting?

Please give me a e-mail or answer in here.  Thank you so much.

You can't, not really. Those are dependent on the user's print settings, far as I know. Change your printer defaults, they'll be different when you open that Word file.

I've always just created an envelope template that works the way I want.

New doc.
File-page setup-change to Com10 envelope
Landscape
Margins: L=4.00, R=.5, T=2.25, B=.5
Set the printing options you want.
Save the file as a template.
Hit File-New and double-click the template anytime you want an envelope (or more than one)

Margins are kept -- printer tray/feed options aren't. At least, I've never seen them retained.

Thanks for Webwoman and Dreamboat.  I try Dreamboat's method but feed method option setting still can not retain!

In 4 words: You can not save settings BUT...
You can create a macro which can print, using your settings.
The easiest way is to just record a Macro if you are not used to write VB scripts:
Tools > Macro..> Record a Macro
Now make all changes to Word settings and print and "stop recording macro"
Now create a button in word and assign the buttom to the macro.
If did not work and if you like this idea, I can post a macro here with your settings to add to VBA.

Navid,

I am not familiar about maro and VBA,  would you please tell me the steps of set up marco and create button.

Please post your macro as well.  Thanks.



Dreamboat,
The most inportant is to set the envolope print loacation in HP Laserjet 5M.  This setting can not retain.  Thanks.

Navid is absolutely right (as usual). Send me an email at techsupportgirl@home.com. I've got "how to record a macro in Word" all written up with pictures and everything in, of course, a Word document. Anyone else that wants it is also welcome!

(Regardless, Navid should get the points if you use that method.)

Do your users have more than one printer? If so, you might want to set up 2 macros and let them pick the one they need to use.

It not really much different than setting it up in the printer properties, but I know there are people who get totally confused when they have to do that, and giving them a macro (or 2) that has the correct settings would certainly make their lives a lot easier. ;-)

Dreamboat & webwoman,
The user use more than one network printer, the Laserjet 5M printer is for envolope printing.  The print sstting can be retain in Win98 but not for Win2k.

If I the macro works and can be created a button for user to choose than the problem can sloved.

Thank so much!
