How to keep printing script in landscape with LOCL

Dear Forum,

We have a script document to print in landscape. It works when printing with the printers that are defined on SAP. It is a 3 pages spool. But, when it is printed using LOCL, only the first page is landscape, the rests are printed as portrait.

I have tried creating a new device type as a copy of SAPWIN and assign only page format with landscape orientation, but didn't help.

Do you have any idea?

Regards,

Agoes

    LOCL means it is not assigned to SAP. Usually we print all our documents on SAP socfigured printer only... so, you can omit this error... until unless it prints wrong in SAP there is no need to worry.

    Also not in SAPscript there is no way that you can print one page in Landscape and second page onward in portrait... this can only be acheived in SMArtforms.

      I know that .........

      I was using SAPWIN, didn't work. That's why I created a new device as a copy of SAPWIN, called ZSAPWIN, configuring the format type ZDINA_L, etc. to push it in landscape only. Change the form to use this page format. But, still didn't help.

      My curiosity is, why it works with SAP printer, but not LOCL? Another thing is, if it really doesn't work with LOCL, why I got the first page printed correctly in landscape. The 2nd and 3rd are printed in portrait?

    The problem has been solved by assigning HPLJ4, the very flat PCL5 device type onto a copy of LOCL output device, e.g. called LOCL-PO.
