Printing in Windows 7 using version 5.15 16M

Postby koshita » Mon Feb 24, 2014 10:48 pm

Hello,
I am new to Dataease. My question is can Dataease 5.15 print in Windows 7?
Can you print to a networked printer?

Thank you, Kenny O. :D

Kenny,

Sure.
Share the printer
Then the NET USE command can redirect the printer to LPT1 or whatever.

Where are you located?

Hi Phil,
The net use worked. Now I need to format the reprot and fonts to print on an HP 4100 and 3015 printer.
Is there anyway to adjust the fonts?

Thanks, Kenny O from So. Cal.

Sure. Go to printers.dat, find your printer, page down and you will find several rows of fields where you can enter the PCL code for the font you want. (RTFM here) then you highlight the report format with @s1, @s2, etc. for Special.

PCL5 is the language you need to use.
