My problem is that my report which is actually a receipt of approx 76 mm in width cannot be printed out well using my printer which is epson tm - u210d. so i wonna know why it prints well for like 5 lines then it starts printing junk. Is it memory problem? coz am using data from temporary tables, print and delete the tables immediately.

>why it prints well for like 5 lines then it starts printing junk
usual this may a cable or device-driver problem

does this problem only raises, if you print with quickreport
or also on other apps?

I really think it is the printers fault. You should try to print froim other programs, because I have built many app using quick report on a lot of different printers (well not so many... 5-8) and I never encontered this kind of behaviour.
You should check your printer.

ok.. i tried printing directly to the port using dos programs and it prints well. But when i use windows applicatios like notepad, it can print for so long like 30 lines before it starts printing junk. So thanks for your contributions, i also start to think that it's the drivers problem, coz actually i have not found drivers for XP for this printer so am using 2000 drivers- but in manufactrers website they say for 2000 and XP yu can use this drivers, so i do no what to do.

I went there, but my printer is connected to a serial port(COM1) -not a USB, when i install the USBID it says it can't find no printer, and those drivers i have installed still don solve the problem..

Well, if your printer is connected to the COM port then you should not install the USB drivers then... it's obvious isn't it? :)Try to uninstall your printer and reinstall it from Settings/Printers or control panel and reinstall the com drivers. And if it still doesn't work you should take your printer to your EPSON reseller where you bought it and give it back or ask them to repair it because I really think it's not the driver. It's probabely the RAM of the printer...
