I am specifically addressing this to Mr. Pete as I understand that you have experience in this sytem. However, a reply from any foxite expert welcome.

Currently I have a inventory sytem written in VFP 6. The system runs on a Windows NT Server and Windows 9X clients. Uses normal dot-matrix to print invocies. The client now wants to install an IBM SureOne POS Machine with Pole Display, Receipt Printer, Cash Drawer. They want to use the existing inventory program on this new system with required modification. So far I have not written a POS system. Can you briefly describe the changes that may be needed to the existing program. What I should do to display each item invocied on the pole display, how do I print to a receipt printer, is it through a VFP report? At what point the cash drawer is opened? etc. etc.

May be I am asking too much. But thanks for help.
