Unanswered: Report problem
my database is running on 2 computers and they have different printers.
they both have to run the same reports.
i want to be able to have the same report setup for each printer depending on which computer you are on depends on which report gets printed
I'm assuming you mean that the reports are, for example, A4 for one host machine and A5 for the other?
something like that but its a case of 1 printer takes 11 1/2 inch pages the other takes 3 inches
Simplest, least elegant solution...
Create 2 reports - and then use something like an API call to find the machine it's running on or prompt the user for their choice...
cant do that in this case. as they ask for the report to be printed 200 times in 30 min. what i was thinking was have 2 reports
depending on which computer the user is on the report gets coped to a new name like report3 and have the form print report3
Use the Environ function to find out which computer is running the code, and test that with an If/Then to print the appropriate report.
That sounds like a rather large waste of paper?
