Great story! Thanks for sharing! You are the master!

Not any of my business, of course…

I’ll certainly understand if you agree!

I asked where the plug is located and the printer's network name. Launched Works, printed it on the Apple LaserWriter, and handed to him within a few seconds. He was completely surprised and asked how I did it. I showed him my spreadsheet on the MP2K. He then asked if I could remove the labels and print it again. Within a few seconds I presented it without labels. Impressed, he wandered back to his office. I was paid in full the following week. (-:
