Hi,

Also like Fatech i'm interested in stopping the actual print (still logging all the data in MSDE) if a predefined page count limit is surpassed and send the ps or pcl file to another windows server for processing.

Assuming i can use the events/properties you mentioned in the earlier thread with FaTech can i identify the actual physical print file so I can redirect it?

Thanks

The name of the physical spool file is undocumented and based on which OS level you are running on.  On most it in nnnnn.spl where nnnnn is a 5 digit zero-padded job id

e.g.
00001.spl
00002.spl etc

Moving the file while the spooler is using it in any way can cause problems which I haven't got a work around to.  If you should get any joy with it let me know....
