Re: Disable Filter

The filter tab disappears if I click Edit SQL in a database connection. The table is converted to a query and the filter tab is no longer displayed. I presume this is by design but once it is done is there no way to access the filter again?

Disable Filter

I managed to import a .txt file as a database connection, then use that as the filter for a linked SQL table but when I try to delete it I get a message that says it's still in use.

Re: COM port dropping characters

Update:
I set the Field length in the Structure to 9 with the Delete non printable chars set, and changed the serial port to read 9. It appears to be working now but I will keep testing.

Re: COM port dropping characters

Here are the files I am using as samples. Is there anyone else that uses a scanner to automate printing?

COM port dropping characters

Has anyone successfully created an automation job that will receive data from a handheld scanner (USB that is a virtual COM port), and print the data to a label?

Re: Too many labels

Thanks Damjan, that did the trick. I did indeed have it set to only one character; fixed that all is well.
