Print button not working in OS X Classic

Hi all,

"older version" hold out here. : I have an iMac G5 and installed FM3 on it. I can log onto our server using the "hosts" command, and I thought all was well.

We have a button to "print p/u" sheets which changes layouts, updates a last order date etc. When I click this, the printer's icon in the dock opens, but nothing prints and it doesn't show a print job in the printer's status window. If I use the File>print command (changing the layout manually etc), it prints fine. Two different printers same result. Works fine (as always) on our OS 9 machines.

Any thoughts?.... other than upgrade to FM8 :

I wish it was that easy. : I tried two different printers and got the same result.

Also, it will print if I use the File>Print. It just won't print if I use the button/script for printing, which lead me to believe the printer driver is "ok".... but I've been wrong before. :

hmmmm.. Maybe I'll delete and redo the script.

      Is it possible to use FM's find capabilities to search my inventory on the web? I want customers to be able to find what they're looking for, prices, etc., not to buy on-line, but to ease the heavy seasonal phone traffic in the store. I'm using Adobe GoLive to create the web site. Thanks for any help.

      HELP! Ever since I switched my old Mac IIcx for an iMac, FM crashes the system whenever I try to create a new summary field. Why?

      I am running FM Server 3.04v on an NT Server.
      I have started getting the following error.
      Svr Error 2022
      The server was unable to find a free connection 1 times in the last 60 seconds.
      Everthing seems to be working, but I can't figure out why this has started. Any Ideas?

      I am using FM Pro ver. 3.0 to create a database on a windows 98 machine. I want to share my database with a friend who uses MS Access. Is there a plug-in that will allow me to convert the database so that Access can read it?
