.Vbs printer scripts

Included is the script I am currently using on my network:

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

PrinterPath = "\\WIZARD\CPK2LanierSW"

PrinterDriver = "LANIER LD075 PCL 5e"

WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection PrinterPath, PrinterDriver

WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\WIZARD\CPK2LanierSW"

The script populates the printer into the 'Printer and Faxes' folder and users can print all other documents except excel, mysterioulsly the print server drops the excel print job. The printers that I am having these issues on are the Lanier LD075 and LD060. I have rebuilt the script numerous times and still no luck with excel. Any assistance would be appreciated. :whistle: :">

strPrinterDriver = "HP LaserJet 4000 Series PCL"

' Create the printer port

Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")

Set objNewPort = objWMI.Get("Win32_TCPIPPrinterPort").SpawnInstance_

objNewPort.Name = "IP_" & strPrinterHost

objNewPort.Protocol = 1

objNewPort.HostAddress = "namename"

objNewPort.PortNumber = "9100"

objNewPort.SNMPEnabled = False


' Add the printer

objShell.Run "%windir%\system32\cscript.exe %windir%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -a -p """ & strPrinterName & """ -m """ & strPrinterDriver & """ -r IP_" & strPrinterHost, 0 , True
