                 *This setting should be set by the drivers of printer. Right-click the printer in printers and faxes and check its properties.
                 *If i don't know wrong, departments use dot matrix printers for invoices. And attributes like max lines, tear distance etc are set on the printer by starting the dot matrix printer in configuration mode. For example i used to get in config mode in a dot matrix printer by shutting down, pressing and holding two buttons on ptrinters, and then power on the printer

Thanks for the reply, Yes i agree the printer should be set by the drivers of the printer, previously this person was using a hp1200 laserjet to do exactly the same thing, using a PCL5E driver, same as what it is now..

yes im beginning to think its something i can config on the printer through the Jet Direct print server, i will try that
