Hi Luis
Thanks for your reply - we tried this to no avail - still didn’t print the euro - and still printed the little square with concave sides

Alan,

Some years ago there was an ITJuble article regarding this. Check:

http://www.itjungle.com/fhg/fhg051105-story02.html

It states among other things):
"..
When generating spool files to print to network attached printers, you will have to override the default character identifier setting. This will involve compiling the print file to use the correct code page. When compiling set your character identifier to CHRID(695 1140).

My original system value was CHRID(697 037). This was the original US/Canada setting before the Euro was introduced. The 697/037 and 695/1140 settings are equivalent with exception of the 1140 code page includes the Euro symbol.

.."

HTH,

Luis
