I work in State bank of India, Admin Office at Tirupathi. We use a software package for calculation of employees’ pension. The package is in FoxPro. The problem is, we cannot take print-outs in Laser printer. By default the FoxPro package requires Ribbon printer which is not easily available in most of the offices. Can you please show me the way as to how the FoxPro File can be copied and pasted in Word document so that we can take print-outs from laser printer.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In foxpro there are two files one is DBF (DATABASE) and other file in .txt file.
for printing Database you may import them in excel using import option and for txt file you may open in notepad and copy paste to word.

    Actually there r lot more Q in respect of ur Q..... Was it developed in fpd2.6 dos! Guessing dot matrix is connected thru lpt1 & laser connected to usb.....  If it is true, then how they r connected each printer ! Also clarify whether dos is the computer's main OS/ running this package  in a session in wind env!! If yes,  have  u ever mentioned there can take print from dos and also clarify make and model of printer.If these queries boring u and such kind of info u don't have right now, then try the follosings:As u know dos based apps like fpd2.6 doesnt detect an usb printer one way of directing output to usb normally. Type the command as: net use lpt1 \\<urcomputer name/ip>\<printer's share name> /persistent:Yes(for testing purpose)Now open printer props, and select advance tab then select print processor and select text, and now apply the changes again at the CMD prompt type as: dir > prn this must allow print from usb printer, then again try printing from ur  apps. All of these assuming the apps is running on Windows OS. U can run also on Linux thru DOSEMU.
