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

Laser printers print after a whole page of data is received. The image of the page is built internally then sent to the printer a page at a time. An inkjet printer operates more like a character printer – when it gets enough data to print a line it does so.

Special software and/or hardware will probably be required to print AFP documents on an inkjet. I say “probably” because I’m not positive even that will take care of the issue.

I’ll bet someone else reading your question has experience with AFP and inkjet printers.

**************************************************************************************************
I would set the HPT in RASTER mode, i.e. it will print the page as an image.
To do this specify: :
:RASTERMODE
SCS=YES
AFP=YES.

Additional info:

Perform the cmd:
RTVWSCST DEVTYPE(*TRANSFORM) MFRTYPMDL(*HP520) SRCMBR(HP470B)
SRCFILE(YOURLIB/QTXTSRC) TEXT(‘HP Deskjet 470B Raster Mode’)

Edit the source file. i.e. insert the lines below after the line DATASTREAM=HPPCL4.
:RASTERMODE
SCS=YES
AFP=YES.

Perform the cmd:
CRTWSCST WSCST(yourlib/HP470B) SRCFILE(yourlib/QTXTSRC)
and refer to the WSCST object in de printer devd so it looks like
Workstation customizing object . . : HP470B
Library . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : yourlib

Make sure that in the devd the parameter TRANSFORM is set to YES and the parameter MFRTYPMDL is *HP520.
