I'm able to print w/o any problem in Peachtree but the printer setup is different in PDQ. It seems to be DOS-based requiring a LPT1 (for example). Windows 2000 doesn't appear to let me associate a "LPT1" for a network printer for DOS-based programs (Win 98 did). I don't understand why one part of Peachtree lets me point to the network printer (\\server\hp) while PDQ doesn't. Sorry for my ignorance. I would appreciate any help.

Why exactly can't you map to the network printer?

I would connect the network printer directly to your computer, then test it... if it works, then try by all means to map your computer to the network drive.

NET PRINT \\SERVER\HP /PERSISTENT:YES
