Hi I have a couple printers setup on our network and I've been tasked with a new project.

We have our printers setup with our Active directory so all the users are listed in the printer.

I would like to know how to setup the printer so that when someone prints a document a title page is printed first with the user's name and then the document is printed after that.

The reason for this is that we have lots of users and documents being printed so having a title page of who printed it would be very helpful.

They're called separator pages. Go to printer Properties and click on the Advanced tab, then on the Separator Page button. You can select one of the predefined ones (they're in c:\windows\system32), or create you're own if you're feeling brave. The predefined ones assume a printer that supports PCL or PostScript, which includes most printers that have their own network i/f.

Ok I've heard of separator pages, but how do you do individual ones for the network users.  Right now we have all of our printers on one server.  How can I set it so when "john" prints a document and "sally" prints one that for each person printing there will be a seperator page with their name on it?

That's what separator pages do.

Share your printer from a server, enable separator pages on the server, then install the printer on the PCs. The separator page will include the user's name and various other details, depending on what's specified in the separator page

For details on what can be included on the separator page see
