slightly O/T - automating filename headers in word & PDF


Well-known member
hi folks,

i'm trying to print documents using RICOH PCL6 UniversalDriver V4.31. I use the header/footer feature to automatically insert the filename of the document as a header.

When printing e.g. MS word documents, it inserts "Microsoft Word - " before the filename begins in the header. This doesn't happen with PDF's printed from Acrobat.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas how to stop that from happening?

We have other tools which allow us to do the headers without this issue in bulk, but for when we only need to print one or two documents it would be nice to do so straight out of the application.

Many thanks,
