Michael and Paul,
Thank you both very much for your responses to my post concerning LPR
printout from an AS/400 to VSE. I have tried the suggestions Michael
made and have had some success. The printout is now very clean with the
exception that any lines that should be bold by double printing the line
actually printed twice on seperate lines. The printer appears to be
doing both a CR and LF instead of just a CR.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Again thank you very much for the help.
Scotty
