That's why I suggested a local printer that forwards to the network printer.
Pausing the local queue won't affect the network queue.

Wouldn't that pause all the printing from other users?

Just right click on the printer and choose "Work Offline" and all the
documents will be spooled locally.  Then, when you are ready to print them,
force the print queue back on line, and the will all go...

Subject: [windows2000] Print to file on a network printer


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
all. 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 folder. The line I am using is:

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

Any ideas??
