How to make text on CMR note bolded?
In both CMR waybill programs user can modify all printouts. To do that you need to go to menu Tools/Report generator.
We open a printout file - they are stored in Data/Reports.
IMPORTANT! Please make a backup copy of each CMR note template before making any changes!
In report generator you can change fonts, size of each text box. You can also hide each box so it is not visible on the printout.
Below is a screenshot with few hints. For more detailed instructions you need to menu Help/Report generator help system. It is a complete help file.
In the above example you can see that in area 1 header "Sender/..." was changed to bold. Also in the area 2 variables that will correspond to CMR note data (the one you fill on the form) were bolded. This means that Consignee's details will be written in bold text.
You can also see edit window for the header of area 3.
To hide text on the printout you need to uncheck box on the left - visible. If the checkbox is empty it will change to "false".

How to install CMR SQL 9.000?
Detailed help on how to install CMR SQL 9.000 is under this link
To install CMR SQL 9.000 you need to go through 4 steps:
1. Install MS SQL Server
2. Install CMR SQL 9.000 and map network drive (for multi-desktop installation)
3. Attach database
4. Run program, register it and enter activation key to complete process.
Ad. 1 - Installing MS SQL Server 2008
We need to download MS SQL Server 2008:
Windows 32bit download
Windows 64bit download
We run installation files. It will automatically unpack files.
IMPORTANT! If you want to run program from many desktop stations you need to install SQL Server on the main computer which will play a role of a server!
Installation wizard will ask to add additional components if needed.
Then main installer window appears. We have to click “New Installation or add features to an existing installation” option.
Then we have to accept license agreement.
Now we can choose which features will be installed. If you are a novice user please do not change anything. Users which are knowledgeable about SQL Server may choose to omit some features.
This window allows us to choose server instance name. Again we do not change anything here.
Next screen shows Service accounts. We do not have to change anything. Click “next”.
Now we have to select authentication mode. We leave “Windows Authentication Mode” as it is recommended by Microsoft for safety reasons.
We can agree to sending error reports to Microsoft or not with check box option.
Final screen informs us that installation is complete. We just have to click “close” and it is done.
Ad.2 - Installing CMR SQL 9.000
CMR SQL 9.000 does not require installation
After downloading it has be unpacked to a specified location.
IMPORTANT! (for multi-desktop installation)
We have to create a new folder named for example “Maciosoft”.
Now we have to map this folder as network drive as shown below.
Folder path will end with \Maciosoft
IMPORTANT! (for multi-desktop installation)
If you want to run CMR SQL 9.000 from many desktop stations you need to unpack program files to a computer which will play a role of the server. You DO NOT need to do this on other work stations.
IMPORTANT! After unpacking you have to send registration (link) from a network path! Otherwise program will only work on one desktop station.
Ad. 3 - How to attach SQL database
IMPORTANT! (for multi-desktop installation)We attach database on the main – server – computer.
To attach database we have to run Microsoft SQL Server Managment StudioExpress. It is located in Start/Programs/ Microsoft SQL Server 2005/SQL Server Management Studio Express. After running application we see the first window.
4. We have to click „Add”
5. In Locate Database Files we have to choose file name. Its name is LP_CMR.mdf. You can locate this file in: Data/SQL or C:/Program files/Microsoft SQL Server/MSSQL.1/MSSQL/Data.
6. We confirm the choice of the database with „OK”
This database will be shared by all users. Everybody will see all documents.
(unless program configuration is changed).
Ad.4 - Registering program
When you run program for the first time after installing you have to send registration form.
Please fill out company details carefully.
After registration is complete you cannot move program files to a different location. If you do program will not run!
Registration form will be sent automatically to our company.
Then we will generate license and activation key. You will get them via e-mail. You have to copy license file to main program folder on “server” computer – C:\CMR_SQL… and run program again.
Now you will be asked to enter activation key which was in the same e-mail message – after you do you will have information about number of licenses. Done!
What are system requirements for CMR programs?
For both our CMR programs it is enough to have standard Windows operating system.
However if you install CMR SQL 9.000 to work on more than one computer station there are few things to remember:
You need to designate computer which will play a role of the server (it is best when this computer is a dedicated server).
You have to configure LAN properly for our software to run. We do not configure local networks while performing installation.
It is stronly recommended that LAN is NOT wireless. Wireless LAN networks can often be unstable and slower than traditional cable network.
IMPORTANT! We do not make any guarantees as to how program will work if you have wireless LAN!
For CMR SQL 9.000 to work properly we need to install SQL Server on your computer first. This is why we recommend you have your OS with latest updates installed.
