Crystal reports prints ###### instead of data. What does this indicate?

    We are using an ERP that uses Crystal Reports as its reporting utility. I have an SQL Stored procedure that will automatically print job orders every ten minutes throughout the production day. When my user manually prints the job orders, they print flawlessly. However, when using the sproc to print, I have 6 fields that populate with '######' instead of the data. This was working for about 1 1/2 years up until about 2 weeks. Nothing has changed in code, infrastructure, or procedures. What do the hash tags indicate in Crystal Reports. The sproc doesn't do any I/O operations as the records are already built in the back end and just require printing.

This is cause by the column size being to small in the print area.
Change the cloumn size or resize the column prior to printing to fix this. You may have to do this several times before you get it to print correctly.

Payroll system in DBMS. I don't know what data is to be taken.


Firstly you need to determine/state whether you are using a database application, such as Access, MtSQL or MS SQL and programming them to do create this application, or are you using a programming development tool such as Visual Studio, ASP.NET, PHP or the like, as the solution and guidance will be different for each.
In terms of the data design, you should store the data necessary to identify each employee uniquely and each data point per employee needed to calculate their payroll. You should then store the generic (applys to all employees) such as tax rates, in separate tables and call on it to calculate wages and other paystub data.
For instance, the employee first and last names and tax ID should be a sufficient unique identifier. Create a table for just employees, their names, tax ID, start date, schedule, pay rate, number of deductions, direct bank payment data, etc., and whatever else you decide you need for each employee. You can calculate their wages by multiplying their rate by their schedule and applying the appropriate tax rate and medical/witholding deductions as you go, so calculated data does not need to be stored and consume database space. 
You'll likely need a separate table for common data such as tax rates, one for deductions/witholdings, one for holidays, one for vacation accrual rates, one for medical rates, etc. This data if common to employees does not need to be stored per individual, as that would cause redundant replication of data. If the employees are on an hourly rate, rather than a set salary/wage, then you'll need a table of worked hours per employee, akin to their timesheet data. If you use a timesheet/timecard, the entering and storing only the totals and keeping the physical timesheet for backup records should suffice.
Once you design and populate your database as suggested above, then it's a relatively-simple task of calculating the computed paystub data and storing the salient resulting datapoints for the record.
Consider a reporting application, such as Crystal Reports, for your printing needs, as its far easier to configure Crystal or similar product to format reports, paystubs, checks, etc., than coding these from scratch.
Hope this helps.

Crystal reports in vb 6.0


The short answer is you can't do exactly what you have asked. There are many long answers. Here goes an overview. The data in VB is what you want to report on, that data is in a data base and Crystal Reports is the primo solution.
When you have it working CR and VB will be sharing the same data. VB crunches it and CR tells the world.
Get into CR design mode, for the fields in the reports tell it to use the db you have created and populated using VB .
All of the above is tough and unforgiving. I took a 2 day crash course on CR and left the training with nothing but two large manuals. VB has been my Nemesis for many years.

usually if you are using vb.net to make a application, it must included the crystal report component. you can use that component to create a customized reports. after you search the component but you cannot find it, maybe you need the crystal report application to create. Trying to find a crystal report application and install into your pc. you must be able to create a report after you installed this program.

Crystal Report


Hello CPA,
The communications protocol may not be correct between VB6 and printer. Look in the Add-in Manager for the proper printer lib. Crystal is hard to work with from VB6. I know this is not much, but have you tried using the application wizard? Also there is a lot of information on MSN @ microsoft.

what interface are you using? sounds like windows is sending the data to the printer as graphics which is much more intence then EPL hence the delay between each label.
