Hi Experts,

I have a receipt printer that has a cutting tool. I want to send a command to the receipt printer after a print job is completed to cut the receipt. I am opening the receipt printer as a file using the File System Object and sending text to receipt printer using the File System Object. How do I cause the receipt printer to cut the receipt after the printing is completed?

I am using VB script to print to the receipt printer.

Thanks

What you'll need to do is to send the printer the command to cut. If you have a command manual for your printer you should be able to find it in there. Alternatively, using the printer's brand and model the information may be available on the web somewhere. However, you gave no details about your printer, so I can't look up the commands for you.
