What happens when you specify duplex *NO ?
That is odd – with the print file or override set to:
-duplex(*no) you get pages printed properly – no blank pages
-duplex(*yes) you get apparent page reversal but no printing on back!
did you have a back overlay? try making it blank or the same overlay as the front.
Can you print duplex ever? — say from Word? —
Are you telling the printer to duplex with that string and also changing or overwriting the print file to duplex?
If your printer is defined properly, I don’t see why you need to make any other changes then duplex(*yes).
By doing both ??? My experience with IPDS printers only needed the duplex(*yes).
Thanks for the feedback – I suspected the program but once it printed correctly without duplex I failed to consider that it might be closing and reopening the spool file. So you should have generated a lot of spool files? Silly of me – I had a similiar case with invoicing, back about 95 — wasn’t messing up the duplexing but was downloading the overlays for each invoice — what a hog.
