I have a rather unusual problem. I have created an
accounting application using Power Builder 4.0. I have
converted that application to Power Builder 6.0. I have used
6.0 to create executables in the form of DLL’s for
distribution to my users. One of the features that this
program contains is the ability to print bar code labels.
For this purpose I am using a DataMax 4806 bar code printer.
The application will produce excellent labels in testing
mode under both Power Builder 4.0 and 6.0 and with compiled
Power Builder 4.0 PBD’s. However, when I run the
application using the executable in the DLL format as
created by Power Builder 6.0 the bar code labels fail to
print. The reason for this is rather bizarre. The DataMax
bar code printer uses hex “02” to begin their command
string. When the executable in the DLL format generated by
Power Builder 6.0 creates the printer command strings the
hex “02” code at the beginning of each command is
inexplicably translated to hex “6F”. My question is
why? WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON? Please send any help you
might have regarding this to tom@bcc-software.com. Thank you
in advance for your help. Thomas Persha.

Hi Thomas,

Please repost the message to the PowerBuilder forum so to make sure PowerBuilder
expert can take care of it. This forum is specifically for Appeon for
PowerBuilder product.
