Print file to printer [message #384491] Wed, 04 February 2009 01:45

Hi all,

I have a character mode report which will print to a client side dot matrix printer in 6i. After converted to 10g, we cannot print to the client side printer (because we don't want to map so many print queue from the AS).

So, I try to generate the report to a text file, then use webutil to transfer the txt file to the client PC, and then use Client_HOST to call the window PRINT command to print the text file to the client side printer.

I have test this is successful, however, when I try to do the same thing to a report with Vietnam character, then it is not.
The print request is sent to the printer, but the printer have no response.

But that file can be print successfully if I open in Notepad and then print manually.

I try to use window TYPE command and COPY command, but still have no luck.

Can anyone give me some suggestions for this....
