Macro to print document in Duplex format

I  am trying to write a macro in a template (.dot) file to be used on 
2000 documents based on it. The macro has code to print duplex. The code is 
give below. I get error 'Unable to set shared printer settings' while trying 
to assign printersettings. Isnt it the same like changing the Duplex setting 
in the print->printing preferances? 
Please advice.

Printing checks without printing EFT's
We pay vendors using mostly EFT's but still pay some via check. First we run EFT's and then run checks separately. However sometimes the check batch also includes EFT's thus we need a method to select checks only. Question is how can I select only the check vendors for payment. When paying via EFT, there is a selection for "EFT Only" but no such selection for "Checks Only". Is there a way around this issue?

Banding when printing Gradients in Excel 2007
I use complex spreadsheets with macros to report company sales data. The reports were created in Excel 2002. When I print the charts from 2002, they print fine... text is crisp and gradients are gradients. When I print the same charts in Excel 2007, the gradients don't print. Rather I get a series of four distinct color bands. The lines and text are also not crisp but rather jagged.

Top margin shifts when viewed in print preview
This happened in Pub 97. Just installed Pub 2003, same thing. An 8.5 x 11 landscape page with margin guides all set at .2 inches (for Minolta 3300), also vertical and horizontal ruler guides and grid guides set at 2 columns and rows spaced at .4 inches. The same graphic is in each quadrant filling the bordered area. (Four postcards with an even border when the page is cut into quarters). Looks great until I view the print preview or print it, then it views and prints with a top margin of 6mm or about .25 inch. I don't think it's my printer properties, as I have printed it ...
