System issues

Recommended Posts

This is for the programmers and coders I guess.  I have a software issue in a work place system.  Here what I have

We have a pc windows xp based pos or point of sale system where I work in a restruant. the system is modded to track orders, sales, payroll, running payroll, employee dbf's and such.

 When in the payroll system.  we can adjust time in and time outs  for those who forget to clock in or out.  all changes are recorded to a accumulated payroll and a master labor summary

Now the error I am getting.   If I do any adjustments and exit the change times.  I get a error message

program    tspos 1.7 -error


error number 3163

error description    the field is too small to accept the amount of data you attempted to add.  try inserting or pasting less data

error location     modTSModsRS.bas.  sub writeTSModsTSaudit,  line 195

time  2019-02-25  09:42:39.197


Does anyone have a clue where the issue is or what to look for.

Already checked, they have no clue.  it was wrote 30 years ago, all the i.t. are young and none of the old timers as they call us are around anymore.

That's because it's a well-known open secret that programmers, when they hit 40, are taken out behind the woodshed & dispatched.
