Problem when printing text with multiple #
Baan: ERP LN 6.1
C/S: None/Unknown


Our guys do have a lot of item text where they have something like e.g. ### Test Item ###
Unfortunatley it looks like that ERPLN independent of the Printer always only print 1 #, so it comes out like # Test Item #.
Semicolons do also sometimes cause problems. Are that reserved characters and can I do something to make the system print it correct? It shows correct in the little text window.

As i understood your problem.
I could suggest you to use ascii value to print reserved charecter.
Use ASCII values of those reserved charecter.

If I recall correctly in 4c4 there are some reserved characters, but I do not recall if this included the # or ; characters. I would check with Infor support.

GO Cards!
My latest mantra - make sure you have latest stpapi patches and the latest session object. If on LN then please explore the option of using DAL2 functionality.

This is based on the experience with the % character in labels. If you want to print/display the % character using a label, you have to specify the character twice (as %%) to show just once in the display.

So, to extend on that, to get your text output like you want, you may want to try ###### Text ###### to get output as ### Text ###.

Yes, the ## character is a macro-expansion reserved character, so maybe the system is treating it specially somehow.

thanks for the answers.

It seems like the last answer is pretty close. Just tested it.

1x #: nothing prints
2x #: it prints 1x
3x #: it prints 1x
4x #: it prints 2x
5x #: it prints 2x
6x #: it prints 3x

I guess I will just replace the hashes with something like No. because that is what they use it for.

Thanks again.
