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.

IT did not know what to do.  How I check that information, OUTQ and DEV ?
What is PRTF ?


Until I was just requesting to IT.  Can you tell me how to check OUTQ, ZPL and DEV , so I can check myself ?

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 ?
