    Hi! :)

    My company has been using Novell and a combo of Win98/NT Servers. The company has been like this for years... however, we are now migrating over to Win2k/SQL/Etc - yay!

    The problem we have is with some of our old programs that use "Spoolto" command in our nightly processing. The spoolto command works well in Dos, however when trying to use it in MSDos (command prompt) mode in Win2k, it just doesn't work.

    One of our programmers got wind of using the "net use" command to capture a port and redirect to another printer, however we've yet to get this working.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept...

    Is to explain to me how to use the 'spoolto' command, or another command that functions in a similiar way, in a command prompt window in Win2k, to print to a file.

    Thanks! :)
