    LOCL printer uses System Operation printer drivers. The other printers uses different drivers. You could start from that, and take a look to SAP Note #183948. I transcribed some lines for you.

    This will help you:

    • Lines (uline) *

    Lines drawn in Sapscript with the _ symbol are output as underscores

    ('_'). You then have a problem if you use a proportional font such as

    HELVE for the line, because the line is printed in different lengths on

    PCL and postscript printers. This is because in the postscript of the

    HELVE font (for example), the underscore is approximately 10%

    longer than in the PCL. You should therefore always output lines in a

    non-proportional font such as COURIER so that this problem does not

    To avoid such problems with ULINE & VLINE it is advicable to use BOX command with HEIGHT '0' ( for ULINE ) & WIDTH '0' ( For VLINE ).

    I hope this helps,
