Hi Thomas you’re a star.
Your suggestion works great.
Sometimes what seems to be very complicated has the simplest solution. Thanks to the Forum.
I have tweaked your solution.
I am using Wordpad which comes standard with Windows XP.
I created a standard file output in Newviews and linked it to Wordpad shorcut icon on the desktop.
When I print from Newviews, I then click on the desktop shorcut icon Wordpad and wow I have a screen preview of my document.
I can then modify the document and then have the option to save, print to a usb printer or email.
It also saves paper and ink and takes a few seconds.
Hi Martin and Thomas.
A bit belated to thank you all, but wow your suggestions work great. I really appreciate it.
Now to tax your brains and test your skills a bit more.
You know the saying “newviews can do anything, it’s left to your imagination”
Can you automate your printing process from Newviews to MSword.
e.g. 1. Newviews print to a .bat or .exe file and with an icon on the desktop we can activate this file to print via a windows program to usb.
e.g. 2. Newviews print to a file and call up MSword automatically and then via a macro in MSword call up that file and do the whole process (as you explained) and print automatically.
Is this fix done by now.
If it is included in the July 2007 payroll update then we do not have a payroll plan because the normal Canadian payroll update regarding tables is of no help to us in South Africa.
So could you kindly let know what the “fix” only will cost, if free then email the correction to us urgently please.
Just another reminder about the progress on this issue
Any news on the availability of the USA Payroll library which was created for NV1
Thanks for this, I have tried it, but it still does not solve my problem, I could use this idea or yours for some other needs.
I’ll wait for the programmers fix.
I hope NV2 is also being corrected if it has the same limitation.
I understand you must be very busy.
Just a reminder, any idea when I can expect a reply to the above procedure library adjustment “PRReport”
It’s rather urgent please, because I am giving payslips with the incorrect YTD.
I’m trying to get it done before the next payrun on the 25 Feb 2007
The Payroll Library version is NV1PRUS2 version 3
Let me know how to change the PRREPORT’s YTD mechanism to suit my needs.
If need be also send me the updated procedure library
Many thanks for your prompt reply, much appreciated
I am using PRREPORT and one of the templates for a payslip. The year to date figure on the template slot is giving me for the calendar year (e.g. Jan 2006 to Dec 2006) instead of fiscal year (e.g.Mar 2006 to Feb 2007) as per Odds & Ends. Could you tell me where the problem is. This is on NV1. Very urgent please
I see you have a separate download section for the South African users.
What is the difference, can I download anyone, will I have problems if I do not download from the South African section.
Don’t forget that you also have to type @JOURNAL in the notes view of the journal that you are printing from.
This will enable the template to collect the address and other information from the notes view of the cross account and print it.
1. Please send me your rough copies
2. Also let me know how I can increase additional Address slots above @Adr7
so that I can read more information from the notes view onto the payslip template

watch the latest date on the forum list, but remember when you last read the messages, well this is what I do. There may be an easier way.
Hello, Where did everybody go?
There has been no movement on this forum for a long time.
Are you all holding you breath for NV2 or are you all busy with NV2.
Its in a Journal and in a Distribution.
ACCOUNT DESCRIPTION AMOUNT
GHK.REG SAL=R1000;ST=01.04.04;M3 0.00 First line
GHK.REG SALARY 1000.00 Second line
The amount in PRReport then duplicates to R2000
I minipulate the first line for info to print payslip with PRTCHKS
I use the accrual payroll system
ST=DATE STARTED AND M3=MARRIED WITH 3 KIDS
GHK.REG SALARY 1000.00 First line
GHK.REG SAL=R1000;ST=01.04.04;M3 0.00 Second line
This way the amount does not duplicate
Hope this clarifies
