W2 forms

Russ, that would be soooo sweet if you could do that!!! We are going to try
and modify the crystal form when our W2's arrive and if we get it working
will share it as well.

Thanks

We have used an export of the W2 file and an import into Word.
We will have to modify the Word document to fit our new forms.
I can post the Word file and instructions when I have them done if
you're interested. We're on 4 also and are not ready to move up to
5 or 5.1.

Now here is my question. Are any of the calculations differnt? Do
any of the check boxes change? I haven't started to do the
research yet.

I am having a very strange problem when printing A/P Checks. The invoice
detail list at the top of the check is printing on the first page only. It
is blank on all subsequent pages, although the bottom part of the check
prints fine. The weird part is, if I open it in crystal, it looks fine.
Also, if I print it from my system, or several others, it prints correctly.
However when I try printing it from any of the 4 accounting systems, it does
not work. They run a mixture of NT and 2000, as do the PC's it worked
successfully on. The only difference I can think of is that they have a
different printer set-up as the default. However, if I print it to the
other printer (the one that I am suing), it still does not print correctly.
(Even thought it prints correctly on that printer from my PC and other ones
near me). I am the only one with crystal installed.

Can anybody think of anything I can check, or any reason this is happening?
Is there anyone out there that is still going to be on version 4 when W2
forms need to go out next year? We don't want to upgrade to Vantage 5.1
until March or April of 2002 and just discovered there are changes to the W2
form. Epicor is not providing the update to Vantage version 4. We are going
to try and modify the report in house... I think it's a crystal report. If
anyone has approached this already I would be interested in what you have
done.

Any input would be appreciated.

Perhaps it is the issue where the version of crpe32.dll on your (and others)
PC is different from the Vantage directory. Possibly in 5.0 a newer one was
sent? Have you modified the A/P Checks? If you this difference in .dll
versions could cause some things not to print. Try renaming the crpe32.dll
on you server (in Vantage/DLL I think) to something else (crpe32.dlX) and
then copy the one from your PC to the Vantage/DLL folder. This fixed a
similar issue I had with the PO forms. Just a guess but easy to try and if
it does not work delete the copied one and rename the .dlX back to .dll.

I would suggest that you check your printer drivers. Make sure they are
all using the same one. Epicor suggested to me that we use the HP2
driver (we are using HP laser printers) or the HP2 emulation on non-HP
printers. I also had to save the form with the accounting printer as
the default printer.

I haven't had the problem on AP checks, but I have had very strange
problems on our Payroll checks. None of which Epicor could explain but
they only happen occasionally. Some of those problems are miss-alligned
details, not printing the letter J, not printing one or two checks out
of the batch, printing 2 lines on top of each other, i.e. no line feed
on one or two checks out of the batch.

I don't think that this info will be of much help, but just thought I
would send it anyway.

We too are on V 4 and I would be interested in working on aa solution.
Epicor didn't say anything to us when we inquired on ordering the forms
a while back.

Terry,

I would also be interested on what you did as a work around; I called Epicor regarding this and I was told that I had to upgrade to 5.0 or 5.1 for the W-2's to work.
Support told me, If I did not upgrade I had to do it the old fashion way - the Typewriter. I would feel bad if we were a huge corporation. But I thought I was able to
change to form last year. I am running 4.00.811.

Thanks for the suggestion, Todd. I checked the version of the crpe32.dll on
clients with and without the problem. On all clients, the crpe32.dll file
is: version 8.0.0.371 and the modified date is: jan. 28, 20000. This was
the same on clients that printed ok and clients with the error. I also
checked the crpe32.dll file on the server, it is: Version 7.0.100.15
modified date: Oct. 30, 2000.

I tried copying the client version to the server. Still have the problems
printing. I then tried copying the sever version to the client, still have
the same problem.

Any other suggestions you may have would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Sarah

Maybe check whatever other CR type .DLLs in Vantage/DLL and type same
process on them (crpaig32.dll ?). This all mainly applies only if you are
running a version of A/P Checks which you have modified (where dll
differences might be an issue). BTW - Both C:/windows/system/crpe32.dll and
in vantage/dll for me are 8.0.0.371 dated 1/28/2000 and it was the 7.0.0.0
version I replaced. I guess I am out of suggestions otherwise. This
sounded so much like the PO form issue where only the first release printed
when run from any PC but mine.

Dina:

Being a programmer by trade, I've developed a Visual Foxpro report that we'
ve used the past 3 years. I got frustrated with Epicor's seemingly flippant
attitude toward this and went my own way. Use the print preview portion of
Vantage's W2 processing to create the dbf file. I tried using crystal
reports for the report but we use a 2-wide 4-part form that is actually
14x11 inches. Crystal didn't seem to accommodate that wide a form and I
didn't have ODBC at the time (didn't even know what it was then), hence my
reason of going to what I was familiar with.

Anyways, I'd be happy to go more in-depth if you so desire. Feel free to
call me to talk more.

You can also re-install the printers as local/no network and add a port with
the IP address for the printer. This might help on printing especially in NT
and 2000.

Subject: RE: [Vantage] W2 forms


Dina:

Being a programmer by trade, I've developed a Visual Foxpro report that
we'
ve used the past 3 years. I got frustrated with Epicor's seemingly
flippant
attitude toward this and went my own way. Use the print preview portion
of
Vantage's W2 processing to create the dbf file. I tried using crystal
reports for the report but we use a 2-wide 4-part form that is actually
14x11 inches. Crystal didn't seem to accommodate that wide a form and I
didn't have ODBC at the time (didn't even know what it was then), hence
my
reason of going to what I was familiar with.

Anyways, I'd be happy to go more in-depth if you so desire. Feel free
to
call me to talk more.

Terry,

I would also be interested on what you did as a work around; I called
Epicor regarding this and I was told that I had to upgrade to 5.0 or 5.1
for
the W-2's to work.
Support told me, If I did not upgrade I had to do it the old fashion
way -
the Typewriter. I would feel bad if we were a huge corporation. But I
thought I was able to
change to form last year. I am running 4.00.811.

Thanks,

Dina

We have used an export of the W2 file and an import into Word.
We will have to modify the Word document to fit our new forms.
I can post the Word file and instructions when I have them done if
you're interested. We're on 4 also and are not ready to move up to
5 or 5.1.

Now here is my question. Are any of the calculations differnt? Do
any of the check boxes change? I haven't started to do the
research yet.
