Ask any questions you have about purchasing R&R ReportWorks. Will it work with my operating system? Will it access my database? Can I convert my old reports?

We used to work with clipper and R&R xbase edition (8.1) the report runtime (rrw.exe) produced formatted output (.pcl) which was written into files. These files were used by other softwares to be sent to multiple printers, email and faxes. ____We now want to use the same approach, but with MS-Access as database and PC^s running Windows XP (pro)____Question:__Does the runtime console application of R&R 12 (rrw.exe V12?) still have the possibility to create pcl formatted files (for pcl laser printers) and/or ESC/P coded files for epson matrix printers?____(if so we will order R&R directly)____With kind regards,__Jason Buchman
You can print to file and include the printer codes. If you are using runtime you would set RI_PRINTER to P, RI_WPTR to the printer name and RI_OUTFILE to the output file name.____Within the report designer you would use File Print, select your printer, check the print to file box and then enter the file name in the lower right of the dialog.____Regards,__Kathleen__R&R Support
