I know the syntax of both of these functions but can't find any place in the MS literature where it states when one should be used over the other.

From what I've been able to discern with tests it appears as though I should I use SetAbortProc to handler print spooling errors and AbortDoc to handle user cancellation. Anyone know for sure?

Hi tma,

you should use AbortDoc if you want to programmatically cancel the print job
for any reason, i.e. if you provide the user with a print-progress dialog where
the user can press 'Cancel'. Calling AbortDoc in this case ensures that i.e.
not half of the document is printed when the user presses 'Cancel'.

The SetAbortProc should be used to handle the case printing was cancelled
by the OS, i.e. due to lack of memory, missing paper, broken connection
to the printer a.s.o. With this you can i.e. define a function which asks the
user to 'Retry' or to 'Cancel' the print job.

So, your statement '... I should I use SetAbortProc to handler print spooling errors
and AbortDoc to handle user cancellation' is absoluteley correct.

hope that helps,
