HP 4300dtn prints reports out of order
Posted on 2005-05-13
I am sending reports from MS Access 2003 to our HP4300dtn printer, and the reports are getting printed out of order. Our Access application is set up to print 1 copy of multiple reports with a single button click. So, this amounts to several print jobs being sent to the printer at the same time. The print jobs are generated on a daily basis, and the print jobs need to be printed in a specific order, because there are too many to have to perform a daily manual sort. The printer is network-capable, and I have noticed this same problem whether the print jobs go over the LAN or directly from computer to printer (via LPT1). I have also noticed that there are no other print jobs being sent to this printer, so the order isn't being affected by someone else trying to print to the same printer. Does anyone have any clues as to why this could be happening?
