.eps file prints backwards

I have modified an existing .eps file that prints data which is called from a .ini file. In this .ini file are the X and Y coordinates which designate where the data is supposed to print on the form.  When I print the .eps file, the data that is called from the .ini file prints backwards on the form.  In other words if you look at the form from the back side of the paper and holding the paper up to the light then the data can be read.  But if you look at the data from the front of the form then data is backwards.  Is there a setting in Adobe Illustrator to fix this?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Or is there a setting in GIMP that will fix this file?

I would guess the problem is with the ini file co-ordinates as the eps file is printing correctly.

Illustrator co-ordinates used to be bottom left as a default which may freak your ini file co-ords out a bit.

Check what version Illustrator file you have and check that setting.
