Hi all
I'm not sure if I can get this but I need to send a hp deskjet printer come commands at print time to do some visual print changes.  I have a PCL 4 Laser jet printer command sheet which allows me to do this for a laserjet printer.  Is there a list for a deskjet printer.  A sample would be like

orientation:
Landscape
decimal value=Ec&l1O(o)
hexadecimal value=027 038 108 049 079

regards
Botch

I haven't been able to find much on the deskjet 930c and PCL commands. However, I did find information on PCL commands for the deskjet 1120C and 1220C.

I also found a link to a PCL code comparison between deskjet 850c, 870c, and 890c.

I hope that some of this helps.

Thanks for that.  I was able to set it to landscape but I just cannot postion it correctly on the page.  That is

I have selected A4 paper in the printer setup.  When I print the report and I send the pcl command to make it landscape it starts printing straight away.  But the report is cut at the beginning because it is too long.  I switched to legal page setup but it cuts it off at the other end instead.  How can I centralise the report so All columns are in it.

I will increase the points as I know that this is goin away from my origal question.
