Printing Smartforms/SAPscripts on Zebra printer RX170 xi.


I have created a page size of 2 u00BD X 4 u00BD (H X W) to print a label from SAP and used that from a smart form. When try to print this form SAP I get below error in my SP01.

Can some one help me out to resolve this?

I can see that we can print the same size labels from word, what I need to know is what is that different that I need to do if I want to print something from SAPscripts/Smartforms to Zebra printer RX170 xi.

    How did you create the new page?, to verify the error is not because of the new page size, use a SAP standard page size and print, see if you are getting the same error.

    I think the new page size is calling an unknown print control which is giving the error.

      Unfortunately, the zebra printer I have cannot print beyond 4 Inch width. I used to get this error initially but when I have created a custom device type which was copied from lb_zeb2 and included the page format ZBGLBL which is the page size of 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 I started getting this new error.

      I am not sure, if this is the right way to handle this. Also do we need do some special coding using ZPL4 if yes where and what are those commands
