Hello All,

I installed a printer(HP Laserjet 3390) in UNIX(Solaris).Followed the instructions while installing as to the path it should be present for Reports to read it etc.,
Also modified the uiprint.txt file with the desired .hpd file.
Logging on to the UNIX machine, I am using the below command
rwrun.sh report=xyz.rdf userid=XXXX/XXX@xxx paramform=no p_orig_org='0825' desformat=pdf destype=printer desname=xxxx batch=yes
This command invokes the printer and
^[%12345X@PJL
@PJL SET RESOLUTION=300
@PJL SET PAGEPROTECT=OFF
@PJL SET ENTER LANGUAGE=PCL
^[%1A^[E^
@PJL RESET
^[%12345X

is what it prints.
Realizing that this is because of the missing parameter,tried to change paramform=yes but I am not sure how to pass the parameter.
Can you please help me in this regard

Hi maber,

if seams to me, as if the printer isn t defined correct.
( Parameter passing is a second step)

in the uiprint.txt file
the TK_PRINTER environment variable or
the PRINTER environment variable
is set to the printer name.

Example: printerxx

printerxx:PostScript:2:test:default.ppd:

--------------
p_orig_org='0825' is one example of user_defiend Parameter

Hi Gregor,

This is a PCL type printer and thus
uiprint.txt is set to
printerxx:PCL:5:test:ui4.hpd:

The problem here is it is a transition work and I am taking over the work from my ex-colleague...if p_orig_org is already given a value do you think that paramform should be set to 'YES'

Thank you for the quick response!!!! Smile

My name is 'David'. It is the name that I place at the end of all of my posts.

Can you print any report on any other printer?

Are you the only person at your facility running Forms and Reports?

Is this your first form?

Is this your first report?

This neither my first form or report....but first trying to print a report using UNIX.

We have others in the team also working on forms....
I am not able to print the report in any other printer...

Thank you for the interest but if you think I have to set something during form creation then I can check that either....

Thanks!!!

You say "first trying to print a report using UNIX".

Does this mean that your current environment is Windows and that printing works on your windows attached printers but now you are trying to print on a network printer through the Unix network?

Can you get any application on your PC to print to this Unix printer?

David,

Yes thats perfectly right....I am in Windows and trying to print through a printer connected in UNIX environment.

I can print word docs,spreadsheets etc., through this printer...hope this is what you were referring to in the line 'Can you get any application on your PC to print to this Unix printer?'

Thanks!!!

Sorry, but I can't help. I can only suggest googling and searching this site for defining the 'alias' to the Unix printer and how to use it.

You could also post your code and someone may see the problem with your alias.
