We need to replace an IPDS printer but would like to skip the IPDS requirement (co$t). I have read up on converting IPDS to AFPDS printing and testing my conversion. We have about half a dozen documents that print barcodes (otherwise we could use SCS protocol).
I have a couple of documents that are not printing correctly. Looking at the spool file (and even printing them to a PDF) looks correct. In one case there is a divider line (80 '-' marks) that are supposed to print after the header, instead, if over prints on the header line. In another case in column 1 should be "RM:" (hardcoded) and in position 5 begin a datafield (data always begin with an 'M'). So the printed result should look like "RM: M5..." Instead it prints something like RMM:5... that looks like 4 characters overprininting in the space of 3. My test printer is an HP4100n. I have tried a variety of MFRTYPMDL, WSCTS
