windows_2000_help thread: Printing to file w/o user input

Message #1 by "Mike Deck" <michaelbdeck@t...> on Wed, 8 Aug 2001 23:13:10
I need to set up a printer that I can send a report to which will then 
convert the report to pcl and save the pcl code to a file.  The catch is 
there will not be a human available to input the destination file.  The 
file name needs to either be specified with an API call or worst case 
senario be constant.  I've tried pulling the .SPL files out of 
WINNT\SYTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS, but those files aren't in pcl format. If 
icould force the printer to spool pcl code that would work.  If anyone has 
any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance
