    One of the applications I have written requires double heigth name at the top of the printout. I do the following and it works for printing to a dot matrix printer;

    this is imbeded code

    ??? CHR(27)+"w"+"1" && this turns on double heigth
    @ 1, 70 SAY NAME
    ??? CHR(27)+"w"+"0" && this turns double heigth off

    these codes are from the printer manual.

    Hi Orasad,
    I created a ".mem" file which names the codes I wanted to use. I call it PRINTER.txt and when I want to use the printer, I just "RESTO FROM PRINTER.txt ADDI". I can then send them to printer with "Set print on" or dBase redirect "???" command like
    ??? "&PR12CPI"

    Hope this helps
