Combo propertiesHi

(1) I'm almost done with the point of sales , now I want some help on the visibility of the form combo content , when I select the price in the combo it does not show on the form but it is applied to the invoice and stored very well on the invoice table , there a way to force it show also on the form . Just look at the picture below.

(2) I want also to be printing the invoice after saving on the save form below, do I have to create a second query for the current form to supply the parameters to the underlying query so that  the report invoice go to the printer immediately  after pressing print button?

Below is the actual form:

Hello,

I have an ISERIES and I have a Printronix 7010 printer (matrix) attached to it through a twinax controller. I need to switch this printer from twinax to network.

Could you please help me to the necessary steps to configure this printer to be used over the network instead using a twinax controller?

I really appreciate your help.

Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I have an HP ENVY Photo 6200 All-in-One series and wondering if it would be okay to leave it on all of the time.   It seems to have a power management feature because of the fact that the control panel touch screen blackens out after a certain period of time.  That said, it seems like it would not hurt the printer to leave it on.  What does everyone think about this?

          Thank you

          George

I get an error message showing that a device driver was not successfully installed every time I boot up my computer.   These messages refer to three networked printers.   I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.   The printers show up and print normally under Devices and Printers, but in Device Manager there are multiple entries indicating they are not installed correctly.

I have a Canon Pixma ix6820 printer.  Today it stopped printing in the middle of a page.  The power on light went out.  I cannot get it to turn back on.  The user manual said to unplug the power for 3 minutes, the plug it in and try again.  I did that a couple of time to no avail.  The manual then says to contact a service center.  Just wondering if there is anything else I can try.  I have feeling that the "standard" repair feed is beyond the cost of a new printer.   The closest service center is over 60 miles away.  I will call and see what their standard repair fee is.  If there are no other tricks to try, I will probably get a new printer.

Everything that comes out from our HP M227fdn is powdery. We leave it sitting to maybe dry but it doesn’t help and if the printed area is touched the ink smears. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Hello Experts  ,
We currently have a HP Page Wide Pro 477dw Multi function Printer in the office, after turning it on every morning , and trying to print a few minutes later , it seems to have turned off or gone into sleep mode (power button light ON screen OFF), We have updated the firmware and had HP remotely work on the settings and  made sure SLEEP mode is completely OFF and the settings are configured properly but the issue persists , do we have any other alternatives on the matter?
Again thanks in advance and happy seasons to you guys .

Dell B2375dfw printer slow to start up, and then control panel doesn't work properly.  Have a client with 6 of these printers, and have seen some issues over the last 2 years.  I have upgraded all of them to latest firmware.  One lately will eventually work after powering on... but it could be 30 minutes or 6 hours before it works.  Then it might only work for a couple days at best.  The control panel most of the time has spinning dots while booting up.  When it is functional, the blue boxes on the panel are missing and only the white outline for the boxes appears.  You can touch a few areas and get a response, like toner levels or error message.  You cannot login to the device from the panel.  A firmware earlier this year helped other printers, but the latest problem child was not as lucky.  Is this printer junk, or does anyone have a magic wand?

Hello all,
I have a client that uses an HP Color Laserjet M477fdw printer.
The printer is only 4 months old but they use it alot.
What is happening is that I have vertical lines from all the toners on the ITB (gray long unit underneath the toners).
Is there any way to clean this or does it need to be replaced.
They did use the toners that came with the unit and now they are using refurbished toners.  Is that the cause of this?
Thank you for your help.

I require assistance on a 'powershell' query to obtain the serial number of a USB attached device.

I have used a freeware program, developed by 'Nirsoft', named 'USBDeview'.

I've used the following syntax

gwmi Win32_USBControllerDevice |%{[wmi]($_.Dependent)} | Sort Manufacturer,Description,DeviceID | Ft -GroupBy Manufacturer Description,Service,DeviceID

however i'm having difficulty to get the serial number being included and displayed alongside this query.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Right, i've done some further investigating.

I wish to combine the following two properties into a PowerShell Query.

The USB Printing Support is the (parent) property, and the 'Star TSP100 Cutter' is the child.

If anybody can shed light in how to link these two string values in a powershell query, then this would be much appreciated.

I have attached a picture as to which device i'm trying to get in showing it's serial number,

Any input is greatly appreciated, as i've exhausted in researching articles online.

I have a new computer that is a stand alone computer and I am the administrator
While updating some programs, I noticed that the printer has installed more than one copy of most of the printers in the area.

When I right click on the printer to delete it, I get the error as shown in remove printers error.

I have tried looking in the group policy but items that would prevent removal or running of programs are not enabled

Thanks

Hi Experts,

We have installed a new 2016 print server.  The printers are published through preferences in active directory and item-level targeting is set up to the specific groups.  It prints fine for the end users, but when the administrators try to print a simple test page it errors out?  No matter if the systems are physical or VDI instances.  Printing a document or a page from a browser works fine.

What could be off in the GPO that causes the print test page function not to work?  

Thanks,

Mark

We are having issues with some windows 10 boxes that were upgraded from windows xp. We did the upgrade back when it was pushed out by MS we recently had to update the build of windows 10 PC's to build 1809 and after doing that we are unable to install network printers. It states no compatible drivers found. I have downloaded the latest drivers for a printer to test with and the PC wont accept them but I can install the same printer locally (using IP address to connect) and the same driver. We have many windows 10 PC's in our environment that do not have this issue it seems to only be the ones that were upgraded from 7

Hello Experts!

I have a router with port forwarding turned on for access to a networked printer (port 9100) from external devices.  I want to lock down access to this port to only come from various IP addresses (to avoid spammers from printing to this device).  My router does not seem to have the capability to lock down access to this port from IP addresses, so I'm looking for a way for the Windows OS to only allow certain IPs to access the port.  Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

-Joe

It is a SBS 2011 domain for what it is worth. The HP Smart app on the iPad see all network printers (there are about 20 of them). Absolutely no problem printing to OfficeJet 8600 but it just won't print to a LaserJet 402dne (it is a monochrome lasser. It goes through all the paces, says it is printing but nothing comes out the printer. No indication that anything makes it to the printer.

   Both printers have Bonjour on them. The 402dne must need a little something else to get it to print. Any ideas?

New install of HP M402n.  Printed pages come out of Office app's footer first.  version Type 4 - User Mode.  Driver File mxdwdrv.dll.
Same printer, different computer, same Version and Driver File prints header first.
I've not found any settings that control this behavior.
The user would prefer header first.

Any suggestions?

In previous work place, the Canon IR ADV 4251 offers OCR scanning to PDF
ie the resultant softcopy PDF is text-searchable.

However, in current work place, the same model does not offer this feature.

Is this a plug-in or just an OS upgrade or some sort of additional add-on we
have to buy : can point me to some articles/manual that mention this?

If it's a software upgrade only, can point me to the specific version & where
to get the software?  If it's just a feature to turn on, appreciate the
instructions on how to do this
