WinXP Ok vs Win2000 Bad character mode report

Advertisement

Hello,
We have a character mode report designed and running in a Windows XP machine.
To make it work was necessary to create a custom PRT file that contains the condensed and non condensed codes used by the report.
After some tries it is running ok.
But it will be used in a Windows 2000 Server machine. After installing reports and patches we made a copy of the custom prt file file used in the XP installation and tested.
Unfortunately it doesn't work and the printed page is totally misformated. It seems that the control characters doesn't work...
Trying to understand wy, we use the "print to file" option in xp machine. The control characters are generated ok: "".
Doing the same thing when running in a Win2000 machine it generates wrong control characters.
In addition, if we open the file generate by the Win2000 machine in the WinXP machine, the control characters seems to be ok.
Does anyone know why does it occur and/or how to fix that?
Thanks,
Vinicius Pacheco

OK people, the problem is solved!
The problem was the Epson Dfx5000 printer driver! WinXp and Win2K drivers have a thing in the property page called Advanced Features which has to do with the way the data is spooled to the printer. If you turn it on (default), you get bitmap reports all the time, otherwise you get what you want correctly. This was found by my Supervisor.
i hope this is useful.
Thanks and regards to for all
