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

It is not a configuration problem. When the print writer was started it was started for a specific forms type (usually *STD). Now there is an entry in the output queue that is connected to that printer and it has a forms type of INVOICE. So it is asking you to change forms. (You may not want to print an invoice on blank paper). 

To get a better understanding, use the F1 HELP on the message to get the lower level help. This will explain all the options G B I H R C

    Does your application require a special form to be loaded for printing invoices?

    If you have no special forms requirements the printer can be started or changed to forms *all. Good luck

    The printer spool file was changed to notify the operator to change forms. This was done in the program or by manual intervention. Check with the programming staff if you think this is on error. The spool may have been sent to the wrong outq or any number of other reasons.
