Mystery  character

Startbeitrag von DerekT am 03.09.2013 15:33

Hi all
Probably not a WD issue but...
I have a string constructed using Stringbuild("Payment £%1 received",NumToString(myValue))

What I find is that occasionally this is written as 'Payment £104.21' instead of 'Payment £104.21'

Anyone any idea as to what can cause the  to be present ?


Hi Derek,

probably this is a hardware problem, with parallel connections and unshielded / improperly shielded printer cables this may happen very often. It may happen as well if grounding is flawed, this means that the resistance to real 'ground' is different between printer and computer. Switching on the neon-light or even a starting freezer can induce such funnies. To diagnose this one would need much more info about the actual setup.

Guenter, Thank you

I guess this is a hardware issue as on further research it seems that this only happens on one specific computer.

This not a print problem as such as the error occurs when saving the data to disk on the DB server.
Saving to the local drive on the machine itself shows no problem.

No doubt this point to cabling, network cards, swiches etc etc.

Any thoughts appreciated but I have overcome the problem by NOT using that particular PC.

Hi Derek

I have never seen a hardware issue that would produce always the same result at the same place, and it seems that your problem is localized to:
- one PC
- one specific string/instruction
- one specific character

I would therefore look more in the direction of a faulty/old driver, resident software and other problem of the sort than to the hardware side

Best regards
