Try Printer.Printquality = 0
Works for some printers but some printers ignore this.

Are you using a Hewlett-Packard printer or another PJL-compilant one? If this is the case, I may know a solution.

btw, draft quality = -1 not 0.

You could test if your printer accepts it:

Printer.Printquality = -1
If printer.printquality <>-1 then
   msgbox "setting the printer to economy mode failed!"
end if

For HP printers you may want to send a Printer Job Language (PJL) command in RAW format. If help needed in either the PJL commands or in using the RAW format, just let me know.
