Printing issue while executing IW38 - SAP warning message no. - PT008


Hi Experts,

I am facing a problem in solving a customer issue where he is getting the SAP warning message no. - PT008 - System cannot print the last XXX columns of the report. Now it seems that since this is a warning message we can override this and print anyway but the problem is that spool is getting generated, even then the print is not coming out. This is happening only while trying to print by directly selecting an order from the list of orders. If we go into the display mode of a specific order and then print, the printout is happening successfully.

We also tried to change the settings in spool by going to SP02 (changing the "To Page" and "The Last" field in Display area of the spool settings from "10" to "30" which gave us a warning - "Displaying XX pages could cause a memory overflow"), and tried to print after this, but still spool is getting successfully generated however the print is not coming out of the printer. We are sure this is not a printer problem because printing happens if we give the command from display page of a specific order.

Please help out.
