Frontend printing issue


In our SRM system there is background job runs ZPRINT_PO which runs successfully but it gives the spool request which shows status "waiting".When i double click on status it shows me Status text "Frontend unavailable".

If I try to re-print this manualy than it shows in completed status.

Can anybody please suggest on this....

    Hello Manish,

    it seems that you try to print the spool in background and that your printer is a frontend printer with the 'Host spool access method F: printing on Front End Computer' (in transaction SPAD).

    This doesn't work as far as I know. You have to provide a printer with an other Host spool access method, e.g. C or S or U).

    Printing on a frontend printer means that the SAP System can <b>reach</b> the Frontend (the PC), this is not guaranteed. Perhaps you turn off your PC and then the background job can't reach your frontend.

    Hope that helps,
