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<< && ^^##!!) [email protected]//<4$)7777^3298

    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!

    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!

Windows 7 fargo printer drivers


There are no Windows 7 printer drivers available for the Pro-L printer. You may try using the original Windows XP driver if you know how to setup a virtual XP environment in Windows 7 Pro. This requires you to install the printer and the software that uses it inside the virtual XP.

I created a new label layout in Filemaker pro to print a 4" x 6" label. When I print this label on the Zebra LP 2844 printer it prints fine. If I try to print it on the Z4MPlus it enlarges the print and...


The easiest solution would be to create a new label layout in FileMaker specific for that printer that can be used when printing to that printer which would solve that problem.

The issue with the size being enlarged is most likely with the printer driver and not the FileMaker software so that is where I would look around to see if there is a scaling setting, or some other setting that needs to be corrected in the driver/page setup area for that printer.

I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!

Drivers for this product. for Windows XP


Does your estudio 250 have the "print option" installed? Most newer Toshiba copiers have the parallel port on the machine, however it has to be enabled by adding a print kit or print option.

Can only print one label when I set up Avery Labels


Hi. Look at the label contents. I believe the top corners of the group is touching the header. Meaning it should only print 1 time.
Make the content smaller and be sure it is inside the body area.
