Topic: Post Script Printer (driver)?

Hello to all;

I have installed Acrobat 4.05 and now show two new printers (Distiller and PDF Writer),and both work fine (so far). I keep reading about creating a PS file and distilling.

Question (from a struggling NOVICE):

I can't seem to find a printer driver that creates a .ps file. Do I need to download one from somewhere (suggestions anyone)? I have a Canon BJC 80 installed. It seems that both Distiller and PDF Writer make .pdf files. Do I need a PS printer or are Distiller and or PDF Writer all I need. I'm presently converting a lot of M$ Excel files and quality is less than expected in both. Is a PS Printer what I need? Any comments or links would be greatly appreciated.


TIA
P C Capach
