Printing Filemaker pro 7 from Windows XP

Hello
We are having trouble with printing from Filemaker Pro 7 to a Toshiba Estudio 250 printer /copier. All other programmes print OK. The computer is a PC running Windows XP 2002 Service Pack 2 Pentium III.
The merged data from the list comes out fine but the text boxes in the layout (for an address sheet) comes out as gobbledegook: just numbers, symbols, garbage.

e.g.
@??***%%% $20) 3344% &&% 222$$99)))7%%
(#@!() 33379<< && ^^##!!) 3333@//<4$)7777^3298

    If you are still having an issue with which I might assist, I would like to get to FixYa!

    Hello, td4dave. Haven't heard back from you - just wanted to check to see if you are still having issues or if we have gotten it fixed. Thought I would add a little info re drivers.



    Since detecting the type of equipment you have, and its numerous technical specifications, can be quite difficult, it may be easiest to use a site that will scan your system and determine the updates needed. Three available sites: driveragent.com, drivers.com, and drivershq.com.



    I am hopeful that we have reached a solution for you, to the point where you feel that my help has brought us to a FixYa rating! Thanks!

  • Cheryl Whalen Apr 27, 2008

    Thanks for the feedback - glad you got it going - and yes, there's a MS influence in (almost) all our lives that is often not pleasant! Happy news, and again, thanks for checking back in. Best of luck to you!

Cannot connect to networked computer: Error - "not enough storage space to process this command"


Okay, first a bit of "techie" information. When you print you send a file to the "print spooler" on the system handling the printing. In your case, that is Workstation 2. That file can be quite large and if there are several sent at once it can take up a lot of room. Once the system finishes printing it then clears out that space on the hard drive. Second, because you also use that for a file storage it may be that a lot of files are stored on that system either permanently or temporarily. So....the answer is that you are probably temporarily running out of disk space.

The reason you IRPStackSize increase worked is that you set aside more space for that stack so the system could hand incoming data more easily ...which meant it could sometimes delay a disk write enough to avoid a printing error.

The solution is to either increase the hard drive capacity of the system or to move the printing or customer files to another system on the network.

Of course, I could be wrong about this....;>) but it's the first thing that occurred to me.

Hello,

Your license is still valid but you have to call Microsoft ( 1-800-805-4440) and provide them your product id so that they can generate the a new windows XP key for you or may be they will offer you Windows 7. Anyhow, you do not have to buy a new Windows XP key.

I have quicken 2009 ver 7 on an XP pro PC using a Kodak 5300 printer and now it will crash everytime I try to print checks. It was working with now changes and now it's not.


Software conflicts occur more than you would think.

IMHO, the most stable platform is Linux. Windows XP Pro is the most stable Operating system Micro$oft has put out ever.

The conflict is somewhere in the software.
either Quickbooks or Kodaks printer software.

The most likely cause is the Kodak printer software.

There is a reason why the printer ink is so cheap. Because of the questionable and oft disparaged software that is packaged with it.

I suggest updating your kodak printer drivers and / or completely uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
