I am sending a report to a dBase device and every second field is blank. What am I doing wrong? 

You have placed extra spaces in the report format and these spaces are being written to the device. For example if your report format is as follows:

{TAG1} {TAG2} {TAG3}

Then the report will send TAG1 to the first field, then the space between TAG1} and {TAG2 to the second field, and so on. This will cause the data to appear in every second field. The correct format for the report to send data to a dBase device is as follows:


There should not be any spaces between the }{ enclosing each of the fields. Also you should not have any extra spaces after the last field - be careful of this because some editors will add newline and end of file characters onto the end of the file.
