SAP Printers and Mass Printing of SAP Work Orders

Good day Experts,

We have a printer related issue especially mass printing of Work Orders. We have discovered that printing a list

of work orders takes longer with intervals of 10min up to an hour, as compared to printing smaller list(1-5 etc)

We are not certain whether this problem originates from the Network or SAP. The problem is not one of uniform nature,

changes frequently, Sometimes better and sometimes worse.

Please advise me.

Thank you.

    There could be many reason behind this

    1. Logic put to fetch data without key fields

    2. unwanted code

    3. Using System status search

    4. getting data from User status tables such as JCDS

    just check by giving print with one order, even if it results in performance issues, then it requires Fine tuning

    you have to check with developer to removed unwanted code

    Get your ABAP team to put a ST05 or SE30 trace on the mass-print program.

    This should then help to should highlight the long-runtime issue.
