In PDW, we would like to have the ability to enter new orders (records), then
whenever desired throughout the day, batch print all orders which have not
been printed previously. We don't want to use a date to determine which
records to print as we desire to be able to print these new records at more
times that once during the day.
In order to do this, we are considering adding a field to our table that would
be blank at the time the order is entered, then programming a button that
would locate all records in which this field was blank (or could be a certain
status number), then print these new records, then change the field in each of
these records in order to indicate that they had been printed.
Is this the best way to accomplish this task or are there better or simpler
ways to accomplish this task. All suggestions will be appreciated! Feel free
to post or e-mail any responses.
Thanks in advance.
