Hi We have a client using IBM Power 6 Server with Os/400 V5R4 using Iseries Acces version 6 to control a Lexmark 2381 printer contected to a P.C. The problem we are having is we are trying to print an 8 1/2 " form (51 lines) and the first form prints fine (Continuese forms) but at the end of the first form the printer slews up to the start position of a 11" form. We have used the printer driver from Lexmark, the Microsoft Lexmark driver and the IBMPROPRINTER driver and none of them work. The program has defined the forms length as 51 lines and we have also set the number of lines per page in the printer to 51 lines. Has any one got the answer to this. Steve G.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

try :
font for I series print file : courier 10
check Transform print data
printer model= *lex2381
check printer supports ascii code page 899
customizing object = QWPLEX2380
Library = QSYS

If you don’t have the Cust. obj. you may need to create 1and name it something easy to remember.
If so see IBM website for details.
This is what we use to print a peel and stick 4X6 label at multiple printers via Client Accessand it always lines up correctly.
Good luck

    Make sure you have set the Top of Form correctly. If you do not have a user guide or Quick Reference, try this: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/2400dm/en.html. It is for the 2400 series but I think it is the same as the 2381.

    Toip of form response reminded me that you also need to set the TEAR OFF position. That info is also in the 2400 series guide.
