I have a PC running W2K pro which is part of a small office network.   This PC shares an office printer with 4 others.  I've hooked up an HP 1300 directly to it and I want to have the PC prompt me with a choice of the 2 printers I want to use for the print job....How can I do this..??

You can probably achieve it using a VB script, but you may want to try the Programming forum instead of Printers

If printing from word, for example, just use the file menu >print, instead of clicking the printer icon.
and then select the relevant printer from the drop down box in the print dialog.
