View Full Version : Does anyone know how to open a cash drawer using Crystal Reports?

11-24-2004, 10:06 PM
I have a client who is using their computer to generate a POS receipt. They also have a cash drawer APG C-DRWR VASARIO MULTI 24V with printer EPS TM-U220D US NO DM NO HUB EDG, which uses a USB port. They are using the BusinessVision accounting package that utilizes Crystal Reports to create a cash receipt. I need the codes to make the cash drawer pop out. I have looked at various manuals and they all tell me to use drawer codes 27,112,0,25,250. I don't understand where to put the code within Crystal Reports or anywhere or convert it so that Crystal Reports can understand it. chr(129) in the header doesn't help b/c they are using a USB port and not COM or LPT ports. Can anyone help me please? Thanks in advance.

I was trying to do some Google searches, but wasn't really coming up with anything...

I don't know anything about Crystal Reports or Cash Drawers myself, so I wouldn't be able to lend any personal advice in that regard.

You might want to contact both Crystal Reports and AGP to see how to make this work:

Forums and Technical Support/Email will be the places to look.

Good luck,
