Hello,

My name is David.

Depending upon the printer you are using, the following commands should work:

Send Esc&l1O in a file such as landscape.prn, along with a code to eject the page from your printer Esc&l0H. Save each command in notepad as unicode (landscape.prn for the first command and eject.prn for the second command).

Then to copy the file text.txt to your printer do the following if network or LPT printer:

copy /b landscape.prn+text.txt+eject.prn \\pcname\shared_printer_name

or

copy /b landscape.prn+text.txt+eject.prn lpt1

Please let me know the result and if you need further assistance.

Thanks,

David.
