We have this application that we set up printers to it and users shall choose printer to print oracle reports. But all of a sudden one of the printers stopped working and got this error:

PCL XL ERROR
Error: missingAttribute
Operator: BeginPage
Position: 3

But for our other printers, it's working fine just for this one.

Please advise. THanks!

My first suggestion would be to install the PCL 5 or PCL5e driver for that printer.  The printer usually has one for the version of PCL available.  Unless you have some specific need for PCL 6 you won't notice a difference and PCL 6 can be a little more quirky with some apps, etc.

Let me know if you have a question about this.

I am glad it is working now.  To get the function back you probably just need to go into the Printers folder, bring up the Properties for that printer, go to the Device Settins tab (or one similar) and select the option that shows to enable duplexing.  Depending on the printer this could be done by showing a "duplexing unit" is installed.  Let me know if you have a question about any of this but it could be hard for me to be specific without that exact printer (or screenshots of what you see).
Otherwise the issue could be driver related.  Did you install the drivers for that exact printer and your computer's operating system?  Hopefully the issue is the easier cause above. :)
