coleague uses an old dot matrix printer to print bar codes off, worked fine on one machine, now plugged it into a new machine, and the printer prints to the end of one line, then stops. you then need to hit return for it to print the next line, and so on...

win98, brother M-1709 printer, printing from DOS-based database (worked fine on other PC!!!)

thx in advance!

i failed to say: my question is: "how does he stop having to hit return to print the next line???" it should all print as one...

To find them, try Google.

You might have to go for "Emulation". Many dot matrix printers emulate one or another on the Epson printers.
