Paper Receipts

Receipt Margin check for all Users running Crystal Reports *** For clients using Preprinted Paper Receipts Only ***

The Receipt Margin describes how to test your receipt margins (this applies to pre-printed receipts only). If you do not have rights to change your Ease or Ease2008 folder, which is found under Program Files x86 or Program Files, your IT support person may be required. 

​ *** When testing the receipt margins, you must close @EASE and re-open it should a change be made as it is at this time. The program reads the margin settings.

Compact Database Utility for MDB Databases Only

The utility resides in the same folder as the database. If you have the database on a server, you must install the VB utility below on your server.


​The download file is a Zip format containing the.EXE and CONFIG files. Both files need to reside in the folder with the Ease.MDB file.
