MICR Printing doesn't work in Crystal 9

I have justed from Crystal 8.5 to Crystal 9. The check we print has a MICR line on the bottom of the check. It works fine in Crystal 8.5 but not in CR 9.

The MICR line field formula is

"~**1M~(8M~(s0p8h10v0s0b100T" + "C" + {GLF_BAT_DOC.DOC_REF1} + "C " +
"032" + "D" + "298" + "A " + "88" + "D" + "1248" + "C" + "~(10U"

"~**1M~(8M~(s0p8h10v0s0b100T"   invokes the device font on the printer.

I have noticed that Crystal 9 has introduced Embedded fonts control. I was wondering if I can make crystal use the device font on the printer instead of the font that is in the crystal 9 check report?

Agree.  I lloked through my CR9 reference and it doesn't discuss Embedded font control.  I know earlier versions didn't handle Escape sequences for printer control very well.  

The Crystal knowledge base also doesn't address the issue.

Thanks for your help.......I resolved the issue.

I ended up downloading the latest Print Driver and also increased the font size and for some reason it worked.

Hi Guys,

Hope you can help.

Same thing, moved to Crystal 9.

MICR line field formula is:

     ~**1M~(8M~(s0p8h10v0s0b100T
     + C113031C A014D052A 8376D31218C
     + ~(19U
     + ~(s1p8.04vb16901T

We're also printing from a 64-bit NT server to a 32-bit HP LasertJet 4100N printer.

I've been told that a universal print driver and all fonts installed on the 32-bit server have been loaded on the 64-bit NT server.


Our problem is that the decoding is not occuring for the MICR line and it's printing it like this:

~**1M~(8M~(s0p8h10v0s0b100TC113031C A014D052A 8376D31218C~(19U~(s1p8.04vb16901T


Any idea?

Also, would I be able to tell the font based on that formula?

Will appreciate very much any help.



Many Thanks
