    Unanswered: Can't Print from Dbase under Win2000?

    I've inherited a legacy DBASE that runs in a DOS window on Win2000. I'm connected to a printer on LPT1.

    I can print from Win2000 fine.

    If I shell out to the DOS prompt, I can print from DOS fine.

    But when I try to print from within DBASE--forget it. I've tried
    .SET PRINTER LPT1:
    .SET PRINT ON

    but when I try to print--the output goes into never never land.

    It seems to me that the problem is a DBASE setting. Does anyone have a suggestion or know what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance!

    try in this manner:

    SET PRINTER TO FILE TEMP.TXT

    then
    RUN COPY TEMP.TXT LPT1
