Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

A simple explaination is prior to spooling, when printing a report, the report actually printed as the program was running. Now, when the program runs, the report is stored on disk and printer later. That is spooling.

    You could search for 'spooling' on WhatIs.com to see references. A Google search will show just about everything that's generally known. For an example, just print something to a networked printer that is busy printing other documents or reports. -- Tom
