    Default Controlled Docs - Disable Print?

    I'm coding a system for use on an intranet. We're displaying documents in the browser that are controlled, so we don't want users to be able to print them. If they do, we have uncontrolled versions of quality standard and work instructions floating about the manufacturing floor. We want to be sure everyone uses the most up to date version they can view on their local PC. Is there a way to disable the option to print in IE 5?

    Default RE: No <eop> - IT CAN BE DONE

    I may not be able to disable the print button in the browser, but someone on the html FAQ provided this remedy for the same idenitcal post that solves mine and may solve someone else&#039;s similar problem:<BR><BR>"ASP Messageboard [Search] <BR>RE: Displaying Controlled Documents - Disable Prin<BR>Giancarlo - 3/6/2001 4:29:40 PM<BR><BR>--------------------------------------------------------------------------------<BR> You can&#039;t control the browser functions.
