PCL Passthrough commands in Win2000

PCL Passthrough commands in Win2000

Can anyone tell me how I get PCL passthrough commands from MS Word to a network printer using MS Win2000 pro as the operating system?
I use this just fine in with MS Word in Win95 but New PCs using MS Word and Win2000 pro has stopped PCL commands getting to the HP printers.  This has to be an OS/driver problem.

I use both operating systems on my network simultaneously and only the Win95 machines work.


RE: PCL Passthrough commands in Win2000

Office97 Service Pack 1 fixes this problem.  It was nothing to do with the OS at all!
