Hi All
I want ot print someting to a file. The something is my computer System Resource Report. Rather than printing out 12 pages of stuff, I thourght I would print it to a file so I could get what I needed out of it. I follow the instructions for printing the report and tick the 'Print to File' Box and name the file. When I go to open it, its all unintelagable. What do I need to do to be able to read this file.
Cheers
Craigb.

Having created a "printer file", it's not meant to be human readable. You can copy it to a printer: copy /b file.prn LPT1: if the printer is on LPT1. I'm not sure what happens with USB printers. :D
