SAPscript and Unicode - Problem

Hi at all,

we're gonna to migrate our system to Unicode.

Now a problem with my forms appears - the print-outs are wrong!

In the preview of for example an order (VA03), everything looks perfect, but when I print this form at the printer, a few letters are missing or replaced by a #.

I think, the code page of the printer is wrong - but which one I have to chose? UTF-2, Unicode xy...?

Please can anyone help me.

Thanks in advance

Michael

On the print-out, the last 6 letters (u0160u0161u0152u0153Žž) where missing or be replaced.

    Hi Boss,

    You are printing En language or another Language. B,coz of the

    some printer settings we are getting the error .Contact your

    BASIS administrator for this.

    Have you completed your vocabulary maintenance (SPUM4)? This is required for converting non-unicode language specific data to unicode. What language is the missing text in?

    Is this a smart form or sapscript?

    Narasimha has a good point. Check the character set for the printer's device type. Very few printers allow you to use the unicode character sets, so you may need to create several versions of the same printer for different languages. This is usually consider BASIS work.

    i.e. Printer 'HP DE' using device type SWIN (character set 1134 for German), 'HP ZH' using device type CNSAPWIN (character set 8434 for Simplified Chinese)
