Right Margin

Right Margin

I am having trouble with VFP in printing forms on a dot matrix printer that requires printing past postion 80. I am using 10 cpi and the driver used is the generic/text only. I can get the line to print once but on subsequent forms the line is truncated. I have sent commands to the printer to set max lenght at 132 characters but is still truncates after 80 . Would like to solve this.


RE: Right Margin

If you are not printing in landscape, then I'd try switching the print to 12cpi, which will give you 16 more characters per line.

You might also check to see whether your margins are being set back after the first line prints.

I hope this helps. I don't have any more specific ideas about this problem. It's been a while since I've had to play with hard-coded print commands and dot-matrix printers.
