Barcode displayed in preview but not printed on physical printers

Hello,

We are facing an issue in Barcode printing. In the developed sapscript, we are able to see the barcode display correctly. But while printing, the Barcode is not printed properly, if it is directly printed from system. If the preview is converted to pdf and then printed, then the barcode is correctly printed.

What could be the possible reason for this?


Make and model of printer - LaserJet 600 M602


Thanks,

Umesh

    Hi,

    from your description I detect that this is a barcode whose bitmap (=barcode image) is properly created inside SAP (and displayed in preview and inserted into PDF) but you are using a printer with a SAP device type which does not support printing of graphics/bitmap images from SAPscript/SF.

    There are some very old device type for Deskjets (HPDJxx) which do not support bitmap output and print only text.

    You need to configure your printer (Deskjet...) using a SAPWIN or SWINCF device type, connect the printer to a Windows server or PC and print via SAPSprint (Windows print server software on that machine) in order to get the barcode printed.

    Regards,

    Alex

    Barcode printing through SAP Script requires additional hardware/software to be installed on the printer, like Former Member mentioned. It also sometimes require some print controls to be called from the SAP Script for the barcode font on the printer to be activated.

    Workaround -> Smartforms.

    Thanks, Juwin
