Hello

I create a text file and save it to the root of my machine at
c:\label\pallet.txt

I then issue a host command as follows:
TYPE C:\LABEL\PALLET.TXT > LPT2 (mapped printer)

I get the following message:

FRM-40735: WHEN-BUTTON-PRESSED trigger raised unhandled exception ORA-302000

If I shell to the OS and type

TYPE C:\LABEL\PALLET.TXT > LPT2 then my label prints

I suspect that when the host command is sent, it perhaps does not like one of the three sysmbols ':' '\' '>' included in the line.

I have experienced a similar situation writing an application in one database where I had to prefix '@' without which the program considered the sysmbol as a reserved symbol... something like this:

TYPE C:@\LABEL@\PALLET.TXT @> LPT2

Any clues? Thank you for your time!
