your machine and have Excel "print to file" through that.

and up made that accessible directly. By the way: Windows has known how
to "print to file" (*.PRN) from time immemorial but has no idea what to
with those files afterwords. If you still have a DOS-addressable printer
on your parallel port you can use the following batch:
copy /B %1 prn
somewhere in your %path% and make it the standard application for *.PRN
or add the following to your registry:
@="E:\\WINBUNT\\NOTEPAD.EXE -s %1"
