    Settings, Printers, Properties, Device Options

    I need, via VBA if possible, to get to and change some printer configuration settings. I cannot access them via Word's Printer Options, they must be accessed through Start, Settings, Printers, etc.

    I need to change some of the Device Options settings in the Properties of the printer.

    Any ideas? I did check APIs via API-Toolshed, but I couldn't find anything that would address this need.

    I suppose, I could use SendKeys..... <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>

    Thanks.

    Upon further exploration, it appears that these settings may be in the system.dat or user.dat. Isn't the system.dat the file which regedit manipulates? Aren't these part of the registry?

    Even though I'm not an expert on VBA I would take a look at the Windows Scripting Host (WSH). Maybe the object model of WSH contains ways to query/set printer properties.

    Thanks. I'll look into it.
