Just print it to the screen also

Wherever you produce output, also print it to the screen.
Example
PRINT #1, "Total: "; TotalSales
would be changed to
PRINT #1, "Total: "; TotalSales
PRINT "Total: "; TotalSales

Try this

The obvious answer:
Wherever you produce output, also print it to the screen.
Example
PRINT #1, "Total: "; TotalSales
would be changed to
PRINT #1, "Total: "; TotalSales
PRINT "Total: "; TotalSales

You can OUT a key value using &H60 on 98 and older machines. XP will not allow changes to settings in the BIOS keyboard including lites. Try the following to get the key press and release codes. Do: press$ = INKEY$ code = INP(&H60) locate 20, 20: PRINT press$; code LOOP UNTIL press$ = CHR$(27) The r...

Windows 98 already can use a port. If you need to add one use a cheap PCI card port. USB is tough in 98. Near impossible in XP because it protects the ports from access. Try PortTalk in XP

Test 2 programs for a serial or parallel port

I made some programs to monitor the serial and parallel ports. The problem is that I want to try to get some input from people that have devices on them. Whether they be something they made or a normal device to see how the programs perform. Eventually I want to be able to get QB to be able to work ...

I already sent this idiot an email and never got a reply

4000 lines of code in an old QB program? Come on! On a Win 3.1? Probably comma separated data files, which could be easily converted, but he will have to determine the needs for a new program and the new data fields. The bid went from $200 at the QBForum to $300 here and no reply? Probably just a je...

The program seems way too big to run even with a bunch of subs. You could use CHAIN to hook different parts of the program together. IE: Change some subs into other BAS files. NOTE: If you use CHAIN do not add the extension: CHAIN "Menu" 'NOT CHAIN "Menu.BAS" CHAIN automatically finds files of it's ...
