AS/400 printing to Infoprint 40 with stapler

I have an IBM Infoprint 40 printer with an attachment that allows me to collate and staple. I have no problem telling it what output bin to go to, but I cannot get it to staple. I can print to this printer from a PC and have no problem stapling. I have tried to override my print file and specify for it to staple. I am not positive that I am using the correct settings in the override.

Any ideas?

As long as the printer supports stapling, then CORNERSTPL should work. The corners that you can specify are device dependent. Refer to your printer's documentation for this information. Note that page rotation does not affect the staple placement. The valid choices for this parameter are *TOPLEFT, *TOPRIGHT, *BOTLEFT and *BOTRIGHT.

CORNERSTPL - Specifies the reference corner that is used for a corner staple. Refer to your printer's documentation to find out which values your printer supports.

I'm assuming that this is the parameter you are talking about.

Yes. I have tried the cornerstaple option. I have also applied a ptf to the AS/400 that I found. This has failed to help me. I can make the pages print to the finisher, but I cannot figure out how to make the finisher staple those pages together. The pages are all from the same spool file.

Is the printer configured as *IPDS? That may be a problem with the way the printer communicates with the AS400 if it isn't. Sounds like you loaded the latest and greatest PTFs but loading the latest CUM Tape wouldn't hurt.

Also, I'm assuming you are using TCP/IP.

When you look at the spool file attributes, with option 8 from the output queue screen, do you see corner staple marked with *YES?

Depending on how you load the paper if you load 8 1/2 * 11 as landscape, you can ONLY specify *TOPLEFT or *BOTLEFT. If you are loading the paper as portrait, then you can ONLY specify *TOPLEFT or *BOTLEFT.

Should work with the info above.

Hope it helps!!!

Sorry, this was a mistake above. Should read as so:

If you are loading the paper as portrait, then you can ONLY specify *TOPLEFT or *TOPRIGHT.

I have the printer configured as a 3812 on the AS/400. The reason is that it will not let me specify *LAN with *IPDS. Ideas?

I was able to create a printer using the CRTDEVPRT using DEVCLS(*LAN) TYPE(*IPDS) LANATTACH(*IP). You would need to specify an IP address for the RMTLOCNAME.

You are using TCP/IP, right?

Yes, I am using IP. I'm not at work to check it right now, but I may have been trying to enter too many parameters when creating the print device. I'll check it monday morning. Thanks.
