    Scenario:
    Windows XP operating system
    Program: Paradox 4.0 running via Command Prompt
    Printer: Epson LQ-300

    The program is working fine, nice and fast.

    BUT when you ask it to print a report it takes about 30 seconds to register the command at the printer and begin printing. Also sometimes it stops printing mid-print and waits for a few seconds before continuing.

    I have just put this onto this machine, it was previously on an early pentium running directly in DOS and reports were instantaneous.

    Thanks

    Sorry, can't offer any useful advice but I was overcome with an attack of nostalgia. :eek:
    I bought an LQ-300 dot matrix printer 22 years ago for use on an 8-bit Atari! It lasted longer than all the inkjets I've had combined. I was amazed to see Staples still selling it this year!
    Again, apologies for butting in to your thread. :)
