i got the answer from .vbscript news group. i needed to concatonate a
vbFormFeed.
i have another related question. i want to use this script to print an asp
page that a user gets to the web servers printer. what would be the best way
to do that? should i save the asp out put to the server asfile and then
print it or can i save it as a object or varable and then print that?
