Hello people, I have a problem. I attempts a text file with the Shell function send to Com1. my syntax: SHELL(‘Command.com’,‘copy’, ‘/c’, ‘c:\Kasse\Etti.epl’ ,‘com1’); with the run Report, start Command.com , is not executed any command waht’s wrong. I write this syntax directly in commend.com the file is copied and the printer work. does somebody have a tip for me?
Topic moved from “Errors” forum (for errors on this WEBSITE) to “Attain Development Forum”.
Two mistakes and one new suggestion: 1) The device name for Com1 is not “COM1” but “COM1:” (don’t forget the colon “Doppelpunkt” at the end) 2) The correct DOS-command would read:
COPY C:\Kasse\Etti.epl COM1:
Therefore one can assume that the appropriate shell-command in C/SIDE (not tested) should read: SHELL(‘COMMAND.COM /C’,‘copy C:\Kasse\Etti.epl COM1:’); Suggestion: There is a utilitiy available for accessing COM ports directly. See: http://www.mynavision.net/dlinfo.asp?FileID=68 However this might not be useful in your case. With best regards from Switzerland Marcus Fabian
