    Dataflex 2.3b Printer

    Is their a way to do this ?

    In my Setup & Control menu, I can access my printers, create assign etc.

    I have created a printer setting to create a text file to a designated path.
    The setting is:

    19 | Copy H:$1 L:MMTXTDave.TXT

    19 is the printer No.
    Now this works ok, whichever file I am in, selecting to print, will create the txt (Dave.txt) if I select printer 19.
    Now, I would ideally like to print and create the txt with the reference No I am actually on instead of Dave.txt.

    Example:
    User is on Estimate No 12345
    If I print this record, I would like it created and saved as 12345.txt

    I have tried %$1%.txt and %$1.txt% and a couple of others, all to no avail.

    Does anybody still know the ways of Dataflex 2.3b so I can achieve this ?

    Also

    Is it possible to setup a PDF Printer ???

    Re: Dataflex 2.3b Printer

    Problem resolved:

    Share PDF Printer and change printing preferences from RAW to TEXT

    From Command Prompt type:

    <pre>net use LPT1 Computer_NamePrinter_Share_Name /Persistent:Yes</pre>


    In DF2.3 printer setup:

    <pre>19 | Copy H:$1 LPT1</pre>


    This pulls up the PDF software and allows to save the DOS file as whatever.PDF <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
