FP_JOB_OPEN issue with local printer

as it is shown in this archieved topic I currently have the same issue while starting a job using the "LOCL" printer.

Because of testing an Adobe Form and because of protecting the environment from unnecessary pollution I want to print some documents on local printer, which is set as an PDF creator.

Starting jobs with FP_JOB_OPEN and a real printer works successfully. If I wanna choose the LOCL printer the obove mentioned FUBA throws an excepton with system error.

Does anybody have a solution or an idea why the function crashed?

Hi, see SAP note 685571 about this. I suppose LOCL uses a Windows device type like SAPWIN or SWINCF.

All Windows device types cannot be supported with the Adobe technology alone. You have two options here:
If the printers addressed via SAPWIN understand the same printer language e.g. PCL, you can assign a PCL XDC file to the Windows device via report RSPO0022. SAP then generates a PCL print data stream for each print.

If SAPWIN addresses a mixed printer landscape that does not support a common printer language, you can assign a PDF XDC file to the Window device type and use the SAPPDFPRINT described in SAP Note 1444342. SAP then generates PDF data that is printed on the printer by SAPPDFPRINT.
