"Any ideas?" is the most frequently-asked question in technical forums. My answer is: yes.

Good on you, Steve

Steve Wiley has written to say he's riffed on my print jobs article  (previously discussed on this blog in an RDL context, here http://spacefold.com/lisa/post/2007/08/11/Reporting-Convergences-Chapter-The-one-about-multiple-sets-of-printing-instructions.aspx), to help folks combine multiple print jobs in VFP.

You can read Steve's article here: Combining Portrait and Landscape Reports into One Print Job in VFP9 - http://sjwiley.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!4B5ADAC60D047AC6!521.entry - and he is very welcome.

Printers.  The bane of my existence. They won't go away.

ReportListeners.  Really deep, and really useful.  They won't go away either.

And that's all she wrote... 

Well, actually, it's not. But there was definitely a good, closure-type feeling about being able to make that particular contribution to the Fox community, and I think it will be the part that folks remember longest.

    And what a contribution it was!  For as long as I'm able to continue using VFP, I'll be employing the services of report listeners.

    Thanks for the nod!

    it was a shame though that Ed Leafe had to stop hosting the websites for Task Pane Central and Report Listener Headquarters as there was no traffic for over an year!

    I agree.  I found out about Report Listener Headquarters too late.
