Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It looks like my detail that I spent so much time on yesterday did not make the post.

I downloaded FNTCHRSET files from an IBM paper that stated the Shade keyword did not work.  I do not get shading.  Printing on a Dell

b2360d-dn Laser printer, Sharp Mx-M503N PCL6, Sharp US2 PCL6.

This is the DDS.

    It may be the way the printers are defined on the i-Series. Are these network printers, what drivers are being used are they set up as *SCS or *IPDS?

    Todd, thanks. The printer file is created as *AFPDS. These are all network printers(outq pointed to an I.P.) *HP4, *HP5SI, no WSCST.

    Double check the drivers for the devices in question.
    there are two more popular ones, we tend to use the *HPPJLDVR.

    *HPPJLDRV:    Specifies the HP-compatible printer      
    driver program.                                        
    *IBMPJLDRV:   Specifies the IBM network printer driver 
    program.

    Once upon a time, in a different job, job role, I had two IBM web links for searching for the settings of different types of printers. I have lost the links in the past 9 years. Is this where you found those?

    For those I did a DSPDEVD and scrolled down to the driver, clicked the mouse on it to position the cursor then did a ALT+ F1 to see the help and options available.

    This IBM link on printer configuration may help as well.
