    Use emulation and character set PC850 is used.

    OCR-fonts are supported. Bar code printing from SAP is not supported.

    Attention: Please follow note 396462 when installing the printer.

    Information required

    Solution

    Printer IBM6400:

    - "Emulation mode" should be set to "P-Series".

    Printer IBM4247:

    - "Emulation mode" should be set to "4247". - Printer compatibility 7 (condensed print) should be set to "16.7 cpi".- Printer compatibility 9 (20 cpi) should be set to "Enabled".

    Printer IBM4232:

    - "IBM 4224 Emulation mode" should be set to "Enabled".

    Caution: The current IBM 4232 model (year of 2000) does not support the OCR-A/B fonts defined in the SAP device type! The SAP device type IGM4232 was developed for an older printer model 4232-302.

    Printer IBM4230:

    - "Emulation mode" should be set to "4202 Proprinter III XL".

    - "condensed print" should be set to "16.7 cpi".
