Re: Run FreeDOS and start DHPOS from autoexec.bat

Its easier just to add this to autoexec.bat C:\POS\POS.EXE I don't know if its worth putting this line in CONFIG.SYS too (prob not necessary for newer PCs) PATH=C:\POS Regards, Alan Merry Christmas from Scotland! Being completely bored and seeing there's no new horses to beat, I'll resurrect this 1...

Re: Sending reports

There is a program called SendMail. I have not tried it but you may want to investigate. It seems to be able to automate the sending of files through SMTP. It is command line driven so setting up a batch file ( vbscript, or other.) to run it seems to be the way to go. Using Windows Scheduler, you wo...

Code: Select all

1. mode com1=9600,n,8,1
2. mode lpt1=com1
3. set DHPOS to use LPT1
I've been using the COM1=LPT1 redirection for a while now and it’s working flawlessly so far!
Which is it??
COM1=LPT1
LPT1=COM1

Re: DHPOS timer bug

The only trouble I've had is when using whole milk. Otherwise nothing says breakfast like a byte of serial.
Though after dinner I prefer Serial port red wine.

Re: Sending reports

I've used DHPOS the last 10 years or so and I've tried at least 4 times (in the early years) to get it to work. Each time I tried I was overwhelmed with unwarranted optimism which turn into despair without any success each time. To avoid further disappointment I stopped trying to get it to work. Lat...

Re: Simplify Journal report. Confirm it works

I now have a XP pc. I've tested and verified my program works. I half guarantee this to work with 2002 up to Excel 2007. My RecCSV_Parse.xls program does flatten the journal csv to show each item sold on a single line. You must have Excel set to allow macros to run. TOOLS > MACROS > SECURITY Select ...

Re: Simplify Journal report?

Well, I found the password to the code module. "Ohh joy!" I said. I'll just browse my code and see if my code flattening the CSV file will meet what the OP wanted. Only to find out that back in the day of development I decided the code module should not only be password protected, BUT the code shoul...

Re: Simplify Journal report?

Long, long ago (2011) I created a helper app (in Excel 2002) to work with the output file created by Dale's REC2CSV.EXE utility. It was intended so sort out the method of payments plus some other stuff. It was helpful to 1's of people. However aside from the summary data, I think i remember that the...

Don't run DHPOS with Windows in SAFE MODE

Just a quick note of caution to all. Having a problem with your PC and think you can limp along for the day by running in SAFE MODE. DON'T DO IT!! With Windows in SAFE MODE, DHPOS will crash. One morning I was having some hardware issues with a PC I've been running the register on for many years. I ...
