Selection of output tray


I have a following question for OUTPUT tray selection:

1. We have 3 different production order lists (OPK8 - > LG02, LV02, LK01).

2. We have a printer with 7 different output trays.

3. We need to print LG02 in output tray Nr. 1, LV02 in output tray Nr. 2 and LK01 in output tray Nr. 3

4. SAP Script Form should be NOT changed, due to printing of shop floor papers on different printers.

Is there any way to select right output tray in SPAD depends on production order list?

Maybe there are another settings in OPK8, etc for right setup?

Many thanks in advance,

    Hello all,

    problem is solved now.


    1. Copy one printer to 3 printers.
    2. Delete all print-controls from sapscript form.
    3. Create 3 device types in SPAD, as copy from original device type
    4. Link 3 device types to each printer
    5. Update formats for each device type -> DIN4 - >Printer initialization
    6. By the section Output Tray, remove hash tag, eg. OTRY 3;

    Issue closed.

    Sure, u need to create new printers in spad and to specifiy the output tray. After it you will be able to choose the correct printer in the finding of the messages.

    But it would be much easier to just modify the driver-program.

    • Yes, i do and it works fine.

      Very strange sounds, that it work at the second print.

      Did you check your OTF-DATA that there are your commands are all included?

      Do you print the document out of the SP01/SP02 and it works fine?

      If that is so, there is no Problem with the printer or the form, then you have to open an OSS by SAP direct, because it works sometime correct is not a possibility we got in our hands.
