I am trying to print a label to a S4M printer.  The printer is connected via network to a computer using AS/400.  I am using the AS/400 to print the label in a remote Zebra S4M printer.  When I tried to print the printer display DATA but do not print the label.

What is happenning?

Hi reyinqu,

Zebra printer are using their own ZPL language. Is your PRTF using that coding ? If not, you found your problem. You'll have to program it under ZPL (http://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/products/printers/industrial_commercial/s4m.html). If so, could you send us your printer definition (OUTQ and DEV) ? In that cas, it might be a setup problem.

Here's a definition of one of my Zebre OUTQ :
OUTQ : QUSRSYS/PRTxxxxxx
MAXPAGES : *NONE    
SEQ : *FIFO      
RMTSYS : *INTNETADR
RMTPRTQ : 'IP'      
AUTOSTRWTR : 1          
MSGQ : *LIBL/QSYSOPR    
CNNTYPE : *IP        
DESTTYPE : *OTHER    
TRANSFORM : *YES      
MFRTYPMDL : *WSCST    
WSCST : QSYS/QWPDEFAULT      
IMGCFG : *NONE            
INTNETADR: 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx '      (where xxx... = the IP address of the printer)
DESTOPT : 'XAUTO XAIX'    
SEPPAGE : *YES            
USRDFNOPT : *NONE            
USRDFNOBJ : *NONE            
USRDRVPGM : *NONE            
SPLFASP        *SYSTEM          

Please, give us more details for more help !

reyinqu:

To see your OUTQ, just type WRKOUTQ PRT* (if your printer name start with 'PRT'). Then, do option 2 in front of your printer to see the definition (and F11 to see the parameters like INTNETADR in my example).

To see the device, just type WRKCFGSTS *DEV PRT* (if your printer name start with 'PRT'). Then do option 8 and option 2 to see the definition (F11 again to see parameters).

PRTF is Printer file accronym. This is the layout of the printout. That's where you define the header/footer and the main part of your report. If your not familiar with iSeries, I can explain you how to find the PRTF object of your report, but I don't know what you'll be able to do with it... Is it what you really want ?

What is the next step you want to do ?
