    Out of memory on report


    I converted a report that prints checks from dos. It was using a macro
    to call a form that was loaded into the printer. I have included those images
    into the report. Total report size with images is about 200kb. I figure around
    5000 pages will need to be printed. The problem is it prints about 150 and
    I get printer out of memory and hard drive out of room. I have almost 7 gig
    on the hard drive free when I start and when I get that error there is only
    about 20meg. iN THE WINDOWS TEMP DIRECTORY IT IS CREATING a bunch of tmp
    files. Not sure why? they are also around 1300kb but one for every page it
    seems. Is there a setting that I am missing somewhere or a fix for this or
    I am I just SOL?

    Re: Out of memory on report

    This is a windows print spooling problem.
    In your printer options tab in control panel -
    you have a choice to spool or print directly to the printer.
    Suggest you flip it to 'print directly to the printer'
    and see the differences in operation.
    there is a difference in 'printer dump file' sizes versus 'actual image
    sizes' -

    what is the printer manufacturer and model # ? what is the OS ? are you
    using any network printer queue?
    Are you using true type fonts or printer fonts ?
    mondo regards [Bill]
