I've been using dBase PLUS v2.01 for many years now, and it does everything I want. For about three years, during which I purchased a new HP Envy inkjet printer, I had not needed to print any reports from my programs, but now that I do I'm finding the the printer doesn't like them.
When I go to print a report the Print Setup window gives me the option of 'HP ePrint + JetAdvantage' or 'HP Envy 5000 series PCL-3' or 'Fax'. The ePrint option appears to do nothing; the HP Envy option does print, but it's extremely slow, taking over 4 minutes for a single A4 page, and often showing an HP error report that it can't print from dBase PLUS despite having just done so. My reports are in the format:-
set printer on
topline= 'L.M.A.S. MEMBERS AS AT '+ltrim(trim(dtoc(date())))
etc. etc. ...
Do I need to change my programming syntax, download a new driver, or what please?
