Hi there,

I am still having problems with my reports but if I can get passed this little problem it would help. My reports are all printing (to the default printers only) but they are printing condensed. The printers are HP laserjets.

Does anyone know how I can stop the condensing?


Thanks for any help, Amy

On the HP laserjet, set the default font size to be 10cpi.

You should be able to do this through the control panel on the front of the laserjet if it is on your model.

If not, you could try typing in the IP address of the printer in internet explorer and using the web access to the printer to update settings (if a new printer)

Older printers will need you to use PJL to change the font size.
CHAR(27) + '%-12345X@PJL DEFAULT LPARM : PCL PITCH=10'

Hope that helps :D

Check out the other post for more information
Half of what he said meant something else, and the other half didn't mean anytthing at all

Amy,

Create a report that will read 1 record on a file.

In logic in have the line

$$TENCPI = CHAR(27) + '%-12345X@PJL DEFAULT LPARM : PCL PITCH=10'

Within the body of the report place the variable $$TENCPI with a field length of 60.

Regen the report and run it.

You should get 1 page with Report Header and column headings on it (both will be condensed).

If you now run any other reports they will be 10cpi.

If this doesn't work, there must be some sort of control character within the Unix print queue routines. Your UNIX admin will be able to help with this.

The only other place I can think is within the $SYSDEF screen.
Type $SYSDEF at any menu and look at "Spooler command" This may be setting something
We have "lp -s -d"

HTH

Steven
