AS/400 printing
Please help. I am having problems printing 12 CPI from our AS/400 with our new printer OKI 3391 ML. Every time we print the AS/400 changes the settings on the OKI printer from font LQ Romans 12 CPI to Courier 10 CPI. The OKI 3391 setup: Emulation Mode - IBM PPR Font - LQ Roman Pitch – 12 CPI I have tried : Changing the OKI setting on the printer “Reset Inhibit” to “Yes” and setting “I-Prime” to “Invalid”, so it will ignore the AS/400 request to change the settings. but that didn’t work so changed them back. On the AS400 , I have tried changing the Font Identifier to several different ID’s. That didn’t work. What should the “System driver program” (SYSDRVPGM) be, have tried *IBMPJLDRV and *HPPJLDRV. Didn’t make any difference. Below is the Device Description for the printer. Hope you can help Many Thanks Michael Rodgers N.

Strange…. is it only this type printer that won’t print the 12 CPI ??

We print to many types of printers and font sizes.

We just set up overides in our CL programs and have had no problems

OVRPRTF FILE(QSYSPRT) PAGESIZE(*N 156) CPI(12) +
OUTQ(HP3005) FORMTYPE(*STD) COPIES(1)

OVRPRTF FILE(QSYSPRT) PAGESIZE(*N 198) CPI(15) +
OUTQ(BACKORD)

As for a differnt font?? we use the default font. It makes things easier to read if the letters are a fixed width format.

    Have you tried the EPSON emulation mode on the printer ? You would need to change your printer configuration. Information on printing to ASCII printers from OKIDATA can be found on: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas14e596d0940ce1af1862569c100790da8
