    Printing in FMS

    So just installed a nice new printer for the Accounts Manager and when she wants to print a report from FMS she gets:

    Floating Point Overflow

    The printer is fine on other applications.

    Tried a reboot of the machine.

    Considering installing the printer locally instead of through the network.

    Any other ideas of what the hell this means?

    Thankies!

    Had this when printing to an HP Colour Laserjet via the network, our SIMS team tried loads of things but eventually I had to install it locally.
    Have not had a problem since.

    Just out of interest Jo is it connected via the network interface or is it shared from a PC's USB port?

    It's because FMS is still 16bit and not a 32bit application. I have the exact same problem with a product called Testbase. As already mentioned, by creating a local port, printing should then work fine.
