Overflow error while printing

Q: When I try to print a prebill, bill, or certain reports, I get an "Overflow" error message. Then the program exits (or crashes with a "General Protection Fault" message).

A: This problem may occur with versions of RTG Bills prior to Version 1.22. The best way to avoid it is to upgrade to a later version.

If the description of a transaction contains a very long paragraph, this error can occur when RTG Bills tries to print the paragraph. The transaction could be a fee or an expense, or even a payment or an adjustment. Usually it is a fee, since the other transactions rarely have long descriptions. However, it only occurs with certain printers, so you might not encounter the error, even if you have some very long paragraphs.

Remember: you can avoid this problem entirely by upgrading to the current version of RTG Bills.
