Conditional Print Sales Order Terms and Conditions

Thank you Pat, Sarah, and Dan,
I ran with your suggestion to create the VB form check box and give
the user
the option to print/don't print the terms page. I am wondering if my users
will take the
two seconds to turn on the suppress or just toss the terms page away like
they've been doing.
Thanks again for you help, you guys are beyond description.
Fellow Vantagians,
Our corporate lawyer insists upon attaching terms and conditions to
Sales Order Acknowledgements, Quotes, and Purchase Orders documents in
Vantage. I've linked an activex rider to these documents using crystal
reports. The problem (if you haven't guessed) is that they ALWAYS print.
If anyone prints hardcopy of a sales orders, they get the terms and
conditions rider. My question is does anyone know of a way to conditionally
suppress the printing of the terms and conditions page? I created a
run-time parameter to prompt for Terms and conditions Yes/No, but I haven't
been able to use it to suppress the printing of the activex document.
Any help is very much appreciated.

I did this by creating a VB form field. send form via e-mail yes/no. I then
created the conditional suppression using the VB form field. Kind of
cumbersome but it works for the little we send forms e-mail.

Dick, I control the printing of "TERMS" with a VBFORM field that is a
logical "TRUE/FALSE". Then I used the "SUPPRESS (NO-Drill-Down)" section of
the Crystal form added the formula "{quotehed.QHNOTERMS} = true". In other
words when the VBFORM field is TRUE then Suppress printing. This way the
user has control of Terms each time they print.

We use the Multi-form print module from Caesar development for this type of
thing. Among other things, it allows you to have multiple forms and the
user can choose the form they want at print-time. With this, we maintain 2
version of our Sales Order acknowledgement form and the users choose between
Standard and extended at time of print. Works great and allows emailing of
the chosen document directly from vantage. The downside with this method is
that we have to maintain 2 forms, but I find that very easy as changes are
minimal to our forms here and also have to purchase upgrade with new vantage
release installs, but the price has been well worth it to us.
