I've been looking for an answer to a particular question that has been puzzling me.

I've discovered this thread:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_21760628.html

"The shared printer on the other PC is still functional, but on the PC where I want to run the report from, the shared printer in control panel says "opening" instead of "ready". I am unable to print a test page."

The symptopms I have been experiencing are very similar - though I have more background.

The background:

I've had to reinstall a bunch of printers following an update that's been made to a W2K server.  The update seems to have caused the print spooler to become corrupted so I've had to clean out the spooler subsystem .

I've since reinstalled the printers.

Now we have an app written in VBA using Access 2003 and it is set to default to one of the printers I have just reinstalled.  I have tested the printer and it does appear to work ok - however when I trigger the VBA to start the print job the printer returns error 2212.

I am perplexed and this is urgent.
