I have a weird situation. We have multiple IBM As400 systems, but when we print a specific report with a bar code on one the As400 systems, the barcode is skued at the bottom and it doesn't print the text below the barcode. If we spool that print to another as400 it prints fine. it's like there is something about the printer devices on that one As400. We checked and the devices are similar to the devices on other As400s. Any ideas?  We created other devices on that system and they do the same thing.  [!-- end header --][!-- left column --]

    You mignt look at the IPDS setting on the printers to see if they are set different. If using some kind of server that is not IPDS check setting for "print area" and "printer language".

    Are the printers the same physical printers for the two AS/400s? Can you run RTVCFGSRC for a printer that works and for a printer that messes up and paste the two results here? Looking those over ought to allow some suggestions about other things to check. Some suggestions will depend on whether or not the two configurations look the same. If they look the same, the suggestions will be different than if they don't. Tom
