Xerox Printers - Smartforms - Font Issue - OCRA/Courier

Post by Chaps » Mon Jun 09, 2003 9:55 am

Hi Sapfans,

We need to print from SAP 4.6C, OCR-A font on Xerox printers at out remote site.

We are able to generate the spool files using HPLJ4 device type and it does print correctly at our site on HP laserjet printers (5Si). But when we send oit via FTP and get this printed at the remote locations on Xerox DP 4635/4890/92C NPS printers, they print in Courier font. Any idea what could be going wrong?

P.S.: Xerox website & OSS #436609 mentions that the DP series mentioned above are capable of PCL 5e/Postscript modes out of the HPLJ4 device type.

Thanks in advance,

Hi thx4allthefish,

Thanks for replying to the query. I was getting frustrated with no solution in sight..... :(

The server is running on a Sun Solaris system. Hope this helps...

Thanks again,
