Access 97 Printing

P: n/a
I am having trouble with printing from Access 97 on a network.

Win 98se peer to peer network
Comp A has the mdb file and the HP printer connected to LPT1

Comp B opens mdb file on Comp A and prints to shared HP on Comp A.

Comp A crashed and I installed a new hard drive and reloaded all app's and
backed up data, including the mdb file.

Now when I open the mdb file from Comp A it wants to print using the shared
network printer address that Comp B uses.

Is there a way around this problem? Can I use a different print config for
each workstation?

Thanks.

If you want to get under the hood take a look at:

Print Programming in Windows

He has lots of sample code in both C and VB.
