If you try to print a separator page in Microsoft Windows for Workgroups version 3.1, the separator page may not print the exact logon name of the person generating the print job.


The separator page option is designed to print a cover sheet for each print job sent to the printer. The separator page contains the name of the document, the user who printed the document, and the time and date the print job was completed. The user name that the separator page prints is the same name with which the user logged on to the system. If the logon name contains a space, however, only the characters preceding the space are printed on the separator page. For example, if you log on with your first and last name separated by a space, only your first name prints on the separator page. This is true for all three separator page options (Simple, Standard, and Custom).


To work around this problem, replace the space in the logon name with another character, such as an underscore.
