    Question How To Get HP Printer to Print small 20 char inch

    I am new

    I am trying to use Dbase III+ and print out
    with a HP DeskJet 895 Cse

    with my dot matrict printer I can use a .PRG file
    and tell it to print small 20 charters per inch

    How do I do this with my HP

    I plan on making a .TXT file and e-mailing it to people
    when people get it , how does the printer know what
    size type to use small/big middle size

    Thank you

    Are you using the actual dBase III+ program from Ashton Tate? It was a 16 bit, MS-DOS Character mode application. It would be around 20 years old now.

    If so, you could use PRG files to send printer control sequences that would set the type size for that particular model of printer. Once you sent a control seqeunce, any printer output from a .FRM or .PRG file would appear in the size you set with the control sequence until the printer was reset.

    Coach me a bit on what you are trying to do. I'm not certain that what you want can be done because of the huge differences between an MS-DOS application and a modern Windows application, but I'll give it my best shot!
