Printer Icon on Access 2003 task bar says (no Printer)
It seems that Access 2003 has a bug. Rarely, if the default printer is a PCL printer, this version of Access will simply refuse to recognise any printers - and they will not appear in the "Print" dialog window. There are three solutions that help.
- Change the default printer to some other installed printer. Then change the printer back to the PCL one within Access 2003. This worked for me but was not a satisfactory solution.
- Find Postscript drivers for the printer in question, install them and set this as the Default Printer. This is what worked for me.
- Installing the latest printer driver on the network printer. (From comments below).
I read that Office 2003 Service Pack 1 resolves this problem, although I have not confirmed this yet as fix 2 worked for me. Update - A commenter below indicates that SP2 (and thereby SP1) does not fix it.
