    Default Printing sheets with "MS XPS Doc Writer" is slow

    Hello,

    I just discovered the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" (XP pro, 2002, SP3) and found a couple of good reasons to use it in replacement for "Adobe Acrobat Standard". I need to print about 60 selected sheets from an Excel workbook, by using a simple VBA statement:

    Sheets(listOfSheets).PrintOut ActivePrinter:="Microsoft XPS Document Writer on Ne02", prtofilename:=XpsFileName, ...

    Unfortunately, this operation takes typically 120 seconds.
    A VBA macro based on "acrobat Distiller" needs less than 20 seconds.
    Given my needs, this is a real problem.

    I would like to optimize the speed to create an xps file with the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer".
    I already tested a number of printing preferences without observing any difference.

    Would you have some suggestion to improve the speed of the "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" ?

    Thanks,

    Michel

    In addition, I would also like to know how many of you are using XPS (instead of pdf)?
