Is there a way to change the font thru the override print file command. The printer emulation is 3812, I am looking for a "softer" font. The font that is being used looks too much like a typewriter.

Software/Hardware used:
os/400 v7r1.

    The appropriate font ID for a 3812 printer device description is 11 (Courier). What is the actual printer device? . Tom

    There is one specific clue, TEXT(‘Hewlett-Packard 8150′), and a couple general clues, TYPE(*IPDS) and MFRTYPMDL(*HP5SI). The three RMTLOCNAME()s make it appear as if there are three different physical printers. . Now, are there three printers? And what are the three printer types? That is, who made each printer and what kinds or models are they? I should have asked more clearly the first time. . Knowing what kinds of printers they are will help in knowing what can be done with them. The more specific you can be about the physical printers, the better chance we'll have. . Tom

    Tom, Here is what I should have told you before, but, I didn't think it was relevant. Now, I am thinking that it is based on your questions. . I spool a job on the as400. This spooled job is then subsequently merged with a tiff form overlay which is stored in an imaging system, The software package that accomplishes this is Real Vision Software. So, this spool file never gets printed to any of the printers that I have mentioned. Yet, when viewed thru the imaging system utilizing the image viewer, the fonts utilized on the form overlay are much softer, when compared to the font that is used for the printed information that is coming directly from the as400 spool file. So, I was wondering if there was a way to use a different as400 font, but, I am not actually printing the form to any of the pritners that I mentioned before. Sorry I didn't bring this up before, but, I am very confused. If you still need the information on the printer, I can get there for you from the computer operator that works out there, Thanks for your assistance,

    It's still not clear what printer you're asking about. Is it a HP 8150? If so, what model? . Whether or not there is any useful control over fonts and presentation will first depend on the actual printer. If it's not an IBM printer or the printer is not designed to work in an IBM environment, then capabilities might become less. Printers such as the HP 8150 series are usually intended more for PC networks, but they can often work well with appropriate configuration. . Overrides for fonts and font attributes can often be applied to printer jos. . Tom

    Tom, There is an IBM/RICOH INFOPRINT 1552. Then, there is a IBM 6400 which is their greenbar system printer. Lastly, there is a RICOH SP 8200DN which is used to print pay checks.

    Hello, Following up on my latest response. At the site, there is an IBM/RICOH INFOPRINT 1552, an IBM 6400, and a RICOH SP 8200DN. Does anyone know if the font can be altered on any of these three printers. The client is complaining that the current font looks too much like a typewriter.

    Can you post a printer file that uses an unwanted typeface? . Tom
