Is it possible to capture print output

P: n/a
It's been years since I captured printer output, basically I've
forgotten how to do it. Can you refresh my brain and let me know how
it's done if it can be done in Access?

I don't want the output from a report per-se...I am looking at the
output that would be sent to a printer with all the print codes and
instead of going to a printer going to a file. A basic text file may be
only a few hundred bytes in size but the text file, sent to a print
queue with all the formatting codes can grow over several thousand bytes
in size. That's the file I want to capture.

Thanks in advance for any input.

This feature is often offered by the printer driver.
Click File - Print, and you will see your printer's dialog.
There may well be a "print to file" option you can check.
