Hi to all,

Im very interested to print data from this dbase. Before venturing forth to purchase form addon and printer, what should I have? Since the dbase or android dont offer any print option. What apps do I need to have? What printer compatible for printing in android ( im thinking on using small bill printer)
Thanks

I use PrinterShare to manage printing on my Android. It prints records generated as PDF to my Canon wireless printer without any problem. It prints via WiFi.

I have also used the same PrinterShare software to print to various HP printers, both desktop and laser, that were networked.

Essentially HanDBase hands off the PDF file to PrinterShare and then that software handles the printing.

Hi,

Instead of print record, choose the export record option. Using this, HanDBase will generate the PDF and display a list of programs capable of handling it, such as PDF viewers on the Android, PrinterShare if it is installed, and so on.
