Hello,

I was wondering if I it's possible to call im6 from an application (made
in Power++) and pass it retrieval arguments. The datawindow(v5.0.03) OCX
that comes with P++2.0 has several bugs with printing so I thought I
could use IM6 to print out the reports. Is this possible?

Thank you in advance for your input,
Raoul

You can call infomaker and have it load a given report but I don't know
about printing. Potentially you could send the shortcut print sequence to
the infomaker window to have it print
