A large portion of my day is spent walking to and from a network printer,
and if I don't get there in time it goes into the inevitable pile that I
have to sort through and get my stuff. 
So I was playing around with the "print to file" option. I thought I could
create a folder on my desktop called PRN. Then when printing whatever I
needed, just save it to that folder. Then when ready I could just print them
After googling a bit the only stuff that came up was with a local printer
connected to LPT1 etc. so I figured I could just substitute the network
address for the printer but when I do, it just creates a PRN file in the
The line I am using is:

COPY my_chart.prn LPT1 /B changed 
COPY my_chart.prn //networkprintername /B

Any ideas??
