I have a USB connected printer that is set up on a printer emulator session on AS/400 and it does print screen fine, but when I print a document from the system, the characters on the page are all mashed together and overlapping each other. How do I fix this?

The printer is HL-L625ODW brother. the setting are 17.1 CPI and 6 LPI, Printer session is configured with Courier new, no PDT, no HPT

max lines per page 66
max characters per line 132

    More information is needed. What make/ model of this printer? Is the printer shared? Is there other system? If yes, you can connect the printer (as this is a usb printer)  and check that if it happens again. Perhaps some configurations are required.

    First thing we need is the print file name. And if it's a local custom print file, we'll need the print file attributes. Most likely first guess is that the pages are defined as 132 chars wide, and they're being condensed to fit the width of the printer's configured page width.

    A lot has to do with the way you have you printer and OUTQ defined. Post your current configuration and we will see what may be wrong.

    I think it may have to do with a WSCST setting. Check out the IBM write up HERE

    Look under the expanded help on 

    Configuring a PC5250 Printer Session to use Host Print Transform (HPT) with a Workstation Customizing Object (WSCST)

    Again, what is the printer file name? This is important to help distinguish between an IBM-supplied printer file that we can probably look at on our own systems and a local custom file.

    When connected to your i-Series , check the DEVD properties an look for the system driver value. For our HP printers we have a set up like this *HPPJLDRV. 

    If you can provide a specific brand and model it will help us figure out the parameter or setting you may be missing.
