Hi Phil,

Perhaps you are missing an "End print" somewhere in your code. Some reports do not need this, others do, depending on how you program the reports. But this is just a shameless guess on my part.

Betreff: Re: O$817 Win10 Printer Issue


I checked the code, and there is no use of a Begin print job...

So thanks for the thoughts, but in this case it seems it is not the issue.

Although what you are saying is, it is the code for that error?

I guess internally it would still do that process, even for a single print, and whatever that is, is having an issue?
