version 98 & 2000 new version wont print 98 files?

I have been a long time user of Publisher. It's my 
favorite program.I do alot of flyers and articles for my 
Methodist church, so purchased a newer version of 
Publisher 2000 for church office. My idea was to copy 
some of my created files so the secretary could just 
click and update the date, prices, etc for the annual 
events. I also wanted to be able to create articles for 
the monthly newletter, email them so they could just be 
popped into the newsletter publisher template I now have 
them using. I copied some files took them and loaded on 
chuch PC. They print on the laser printer but not on the 
color hp ink jet we have.Isn't the updated version 2000 
that the church has not going to let my 98 publisher file 
print? thanks in advance.Dan

Microsoft Office Publisher 2003 and older are critical about printer
drivers. Usually upgrading (or downgrading in some cases) will fix
the problems you are encountering.

If you have not already done so, you would want to visit the
manufacturers website of your printer to download and install the
latest printer driver that is available. It's important to note that
the CD-Rom that came with your printer will most likely NOT have the
most recent driver for your printer.

Popular Printer Driver Sites:
-----------------------------
Canon
http://www.usa.canon.com/html/cprSupportDetail.jsp?minisite=10000&a=b&navfrom=DrivD

HP
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html

Lexmark
http://www.lexmark.com/US/support/drivers/index.html

Epson
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/index.jsp
and visit the downloads/drivers section

Brother
http://www.brother.com/E-ftp/info/index.html
-----------------------------

Search for the printer driver that represents the make and model that you
are using and download that driver. I would make sure you select "Save"
when prompted for download, not "Run". Typically many save to My Documents.
Do not install or run the setup.

Go to Start > Settings > Printers and right click on your current printer
and choose delete from the menu that appears. If prompted to remove all
files, choose yes. Then restart your computer.

Once your computer restarts, go to the folder where your new printer driver
was downloaded and double click the file to extract the printer driver.
This should prompt you through the setup routine for the new driver. If
your computer "detects new hardware" upon restart, it's ok to hit cancel
on that dialog. Go ahead and continue your setup routine of your newly
downloaded printer driver.

If the file that you downloaded is not an executable, but only a file
that is *.inf, then you will need to follow these steps:

1. Go to Start >Settings > Printers
2. Choose "Add Printer"
3. Choose Next
4. Select "Local Printer" then click Next
5. At the next dialog box choose "Have Disk"
6. Browse to the location of your newly downloaded *.inf file
7. Follow the remaining prompts (you may have to insert your Windows CD)
8. I would recommend restarting your computer at this point.

Now try a new print from Publisher.

This should fix your troubles. If not, either contact your printer
manufacturer directly and inform them of the problem you have experienced.
They might request that you try an older printer driver.

Post back if you have any further questions. Feel free to visit my website
at http://www.mvps.org/publisher for some great information.

New Server

Print 2 receipts when selling item with rebate?
Is there any way to program rms to print multiple receipts on particullar items, for example I sell an automatic pool cleaner that has two differant mail in rebates and we always supply the customer with duplicate receipts Victor Out of the box, no. The easiest way is to train cashiers to use the Reprint function when they need a second copy. The other option is to configure the receipts to print 2 copies every time, but that's probably a waste of paper. I'm pretty sure this could be accomplished as a customization using the HTML status bar and QSBridge, but you would need a ...

Easier setup for new Roth 401k
A client informed us that as of 4/1/06, the IRS makes it possible for employees to elect an after-tax contribution to their 401k, as well as their pre-tax contribution. The Retirement Plans Enrollment screen makes it possible to have an employee choose both pre- and after- tax contributions, however only one benefit/deduction is created. Therefore, a separate, non-linked benefit/deduction need to be created for the post-tax contributions. This causes a real headache for maintaining employer match and employee maximums. Proposal would be to create one Retirement (401k) plan, with on...

Excel 2003 Print Issue
