I'm updatinging a point of sale system. I have an older cash register drawer It is hooked up to an Epson receipt printer and I'm trying to figure out how to make Filemaker open the drawer when I print a receipt. Any clues?
I believe you can connect the drawer to the printer. Then the printer opens the drawer when printing. I have done it once before years ago so things may be different now.
Thanks. The drawer is connected but still does not open.
You may need to "print" a specific code or string to open the drawer. You may need to research the specs on the cash drawer to find out what code that might be.
Try This? I found via a Google search...
Right click printer Icon.
Now you will see Cash drawer #1 (2 pins) and Cash Drawer #2 (5 pins)
Each one has these options
Do not open (do not send command)
Open before printing
Open After printing
Open drawer codes.
Thanks. I looked under printer properties and found a place to make the drawer open when the receipt is printed.
Thanks! That worked!
