DOCprint was developed to interface with Global software when a client running GSM for Windows/NT required a change in the method of printing Sales and Purchase orders and invoices from their bespoke order processing packages.

There were a number of disadvantages with this set up which included:-

The reasons for this included:-

The decision was made to develop the precise solution using these guidelines:-

Minimal changes to the Global software were required in order to extract the data which was going to generate the printing of the document. There were two possible solutions to this requirement, both of which can be handled by DOCprint.



The two methods each have their own advantages.

Method 1.

Method 2.
