 Printing reports from a Foxbase+ program on a laser printer

Hello everyone,

Where I work, we have several programs written in Foxbase+ that print using
.FRMS on 11X14 paper.  We have some clients who are wanting to begin using a
laser and print on 8.5X11 paper.  Since there is not much flexibility with
the .FRM's in Foxbase+,  is there an easier way to print .FRM's from
Foxbase+ to a laser without massive modification.  We are in the process of
converting all of out apps to Windows, but it will be a while before they
are completed.  Any sugggestions anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm...

One way is to train your users to control the laser printers by themselves.
Train them how to set the proper font number, number of lines, and page
orientation from the laser printer panel before they print the reports.  The
settings won't affect graphically based application.

This may not be feasible actually.   Some of our users are willing to do
this but some don't.  Eventually those who don't demand me to insert laser
printer specific control codes inside the program to set the printer before
I sent the report out...

Brian.
