DOS printing Question

Hi all Expers,

I'm printing a DOS print using VB.  Here I goes to second line using following command :
strPrint = strPrint & vbCrLf
means i use VbCrLf to go to next line. It gives me one line space.  But how can I go to next line with the half
line space.  Got it....

First, there is no such thing as DOS print. Are you trying to say you are printing on dot-matrix printer?

If yes, then I have done extensive DOS development and never knew any way you could programatically control line-spacing. I mean the way you are trying to achieve it.

The line-spacing must be controlled by printer and not the computer. If you do want to change line-spacing programatically, there are escape sequences to be sent to printer prior to giving any actual print command. These are, at times, specific to printer.

Settings, such as form-feed, line-spacing, etc, must be done just at once, at the beginning. Thereafter, when you send a singl line-feed command to printer, it acts as a one and half line-feed.

I hope you are with me. If not, do drop a line.

You are sending both a carriage return AND a linefeed using vbCrLf if you use simply vbCR then you only send the carriage return and shouldn't get the addditional space.

Thanks TimCottee,  i will definately try ur suggestion.  Actually I'dn't done any done printing program as i always makes a Windows Printing using Crystal Report. As u said I'll try with vbCr.  

If someone can't understand my problem then i'm reapiting it that in simple i have to decrease the line spacing in between two lines.  That's it.
