How do you Print a Print Queue?

By Chris Homer ·
Hi all,
I have the print queue set to keep all documents sent to it so i can make a report as to who is printing the most, what times etc.

I have 250+ documents in the queue (already printed), does anyone know how to print these off as a list? I cant take screen dumps as their will be far to many and it would take ages to trim away the fat from all the images later.

As you can imagion, this is quite a funny one to explain,

Thanks in Advance

Chris

what OS, me wonders?
try this. get to a command prompt (Start/Run/cmd )
navigate to the print queue folder.
type the following
dir >queuelist.txt
and press enter.
that should redirect the output of the directory command to a file named queuelist.txt
then you can print it

Thanks for your comments, im not thinking so well this friday afternoon.

In the spool directory, it looks like each entry in the print queue is generated by the collection of files in the spools directory. There are around 520 files (two for each job?) i dont think it would be possible to convert each one to text.

is there anyway to display the print queue with a command at cmd? cuz then i could just copy the text

Thanks,
Chris

the dir command won't turn each file into text. it will list the files. if you use the right arrow (&gt it will redirect the list from the display to a file. a file containing a list of the spool folder.
maybe somebody else can explain it better. i dislike working with folks that won't even attempt so that's enuf for me
