Transfer print jobs between queues

I have a number of print jobs in the print queue of a printer no longer in service.  Is there any way to transfer these print jobs to a new printer, or are they lost?

They are fax confirmation sheets from a FAXmaker software, and can not be recreated.

Thanks,
Craig

If you have network printer installed on the print server you can redirect the print jobs to another port by going to the property & then changing the port on the print queue .

OK, I bring up the print queue of the dead network printer, and in the menu bar:  Printer>Properties>Ports tab and change the port to the new printer.

When I click "Apply" or "OK", I get an error msgbox "Printer settings could not be saved.  Operation could not be completed."

The new printer is not the same model as the old one.

You can only do this if the new printer is the same model of printer as the old one, otherwise they are lost.

Thanks. That's what I assumed (feared).
