AS/400 Printer File
We have letterhead loaded in drawer 4 and 2 on the printer. I have the IBMi printer file set up to go to drawer 4. When it runs out of paper in drawer 4 we would like it to automatically go to drawer 2, The printer is set to do that but since I specified drawer 4 on the IBMi, it will not do that. I do not think specifying the formtype in the printer file will help. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    You can change the Source Drawer attribute on the Spoolfile and than continue printing. It will not do that automatically. Manual intervention is needed.

    The only other option is some printers will let you add a high capacity tray to them. We have one on our HP laserjet.
