I have a client that uses 10 Mircroline 421 printers (a dot matrix) for purchase order, invoice, pick ticket, etc. They would like to print a barcode on them. The printer does have the capability to print barcodes. The printer is set to IBM emulation. I would like to use the barcode keyword in DDS for the printer file. But would not accept unless it is a AFPDS printer not SCS. So I changed the type to AFPDS, but it would not print. First the printer was hooked up with a crt with 4214 emulation with an address. I then hooked the printer with a PC to use Client Access. I set it up with print host transform *yes and model= *ibm42021. Now it prints but it prints everything on one line with wrapping. Cannot tell if the barcode printed. Is there anything I can do without using PCL language in the program?
