Printing is very slow.

Hi All,

We are facing one problem that printing speed of SAP generated report in our dot matrix printers is very very slow. For example the total printing time of deduction checklist for workers in the legacy system is 10 minutes where as the printing time of same report in SAP is about 7 hours. We cannot afford so much time in one report.

Plesae provide solution for making the printing fast.

Thanks and regards,

    Dear Dhananjay,

    I dont have much knowlege on printing side, but i have got some information . Unfortunately in this case, the speedy of the printing is not defined by the SAP System, but by the printer itself. I hope we can make it faster for changing font Courier on size 8

    In case you decide to change the font to a more simple one, please follow the procedures from SAP Note 12462.

    On the SAP Library (http://help.sap.com), under path: 'BC - SAP Printing Guide'> 'Output Devices in the SAP Spool System' > 'Connecting Output Devices to a Windows system' > 'Which Device Type: SWIN' > 'SAPLPD Options.

    you will find some options to optimize the speed .

    I think it will be more useful to optimize the speed.

    Thanks

    Hi Kaushal Malavia,

    Thanks for your key points.

    After implementing the same as mentioned in the note still print is comming very slow.

    Is this because of any printer settings at os level or more data for printing at the same time?

    So i need your further suggestions and help in this regard.

      HI,

      you mean to say 15-20 pages to print takes 7 hour!!!!?

      do one thing print one test page from sap. make sure printer is free and no other printing is running on that printer.

      launch SM50 -> list -> print

      this will print one or two page . how much time it's takes?

      regards,

      kaushal
