Hi All

I have an old MS DOS :crap: program that genarates a Jobsheet and saves it as a TextFile called JBSHT.txt.

I would like to print the text file to an Networked Printer.
I have search the web for help on this but am still struggling. I can get it to print to the Default Printer using

Dim Proc as New Process
Proc.StartInfo.FileName = "C:\JBSHT.txt"
Proc.StartInfo.Verb = "Print"
proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True
Proc.start()

( found this example on the web ).

I beleive it has something to do with PrintDocument. But cant find anything whuich helps

Many Thanks
