There is this file that I have. Its about 53 pages. Using windows 95 and Office 97 the document wont print. it goes throught everything and right before it spools the last page I get an error. Something like spool fault in winword.exe. I have no option but to click close or details. Close will end the program. But i tried to print it from 6 other computers and it works fine on 5. The same error happend to the last PC. I reinstalled Office and SP. Played with print spooling settings. What else can I do?
Thanks

If you followed the instructions, it should be deleted regardless of where it resides. However, I think it would be in the windows\temp or temp folder of the hard drive, I'm not entirely sure.

A spool file is, basically, a file that holds the translation of the document from the application to the printer. Once the file is sent to the printer, the spool file "should" disappear. Hence, it doesn't "exist" unless it's a temp file that needs to be deleted anyway.
