    Unanswered: POS printers config

    Hello to all.
    After a few month i finished my little application made from MsAccess XP.
    Now im in trouble because i use a "Samsung SRP 100A" pos printer wich ive installed as a Generic/Text printer under Windows 98 SE.
    Now when i go in to design mode on my reports,i only have to kind of fonts : Modern and Roman .
    The printing is acting funny and its not correct.
    I dont know what to do,im stucked in this problem.
    Ive search for a help in the Samsung homepage but unfortunately the printer is an old kind so is out of support.
    Please if someone knows something about how to solve my problem,tell me something good.
    Thanks a lot.
    Regards form Cla.
    P.S.
    The ticket stops at the last line from the report
    how could i "print" a little more blank paper so i can take out the all ticket?
    I think its called "formFeed" or something like that.

    Chr(13) is a Cairage return and Chr(10) is a line feed.

    Have a look here, one of these may suit.

    Samsung Printer Drivers

    I searched with Google and found there are companies out there that have spare parts for the printer, maybe one of them has a copy of the driver?

    Thanks a lot.Unfortunately i did not found the specific driver.
    Im afraid my pos printer its only for DOS systems.
    Im still searching anyway.Maybe there is a easy way thru some code ,to make the printer printing right.
    Thanks.Regards

    if your only problem is that there is no ejection of the paper then you have to implement somewhere a code like this :

    Open "LPT1" For Output As 1
    Print #1, vbFormFeed
    Close #1

    Problem...Bigger than that ...

    Ok my friends,here goes the news.
    I spoke with a guy wich is a professional Delphi programmer and it happens to be the very same guy whom sold me my printer a few years ago,and he told me that my printer is not graphical but it only use text,i did nt know.
    He also told me that Windows does not recognize the printer also because there are no drivers for my printer,so he told me that when i tell Access to print a report,i need to have some kind of "self-made" piece of VB code to tell the report what to print,where and how.
    Sounds very difficult to me all that.
    My is a SERIAL (com) POS printer.
    I ask for a little help here ,im stucked in this problem.

    Thanks again to all.
    Clau.

    My apologies for not responding earlier. Day off .

    The printer will only have the options listed for fonts with a generic driver.
    i have experience with POS various POS systems but not Windows.

    If you have a text string in your VB code you can put in
    Code:
    "blah blah blah"  & chr(10) & chr(13)
    that will cause a return and then a cariage feed. giving you a bit more white space at the bottom of your print out.

    Thanks for your concerne.
    The problem is that the printer does not print the all details section of a report.
