I found messages referring to this subject in the user group.

However I note that it was not clear if a printer driver exists in
Windows NT to allow printing a report as pure ascii to a file.

This was certainly available in msdos.

Anybody know of such a driver for NT ?

Thanks Ralph

You can try using the 'Generic/Text' printer driver that is listed under
manufacturer 'Generic'.
