SAPScript: Chinese characters are different in Preview and Print

Hi Experts,

I try to print PO with ME23N now. When I do the Print Preview, the Chinese characters display as

turbid ones. But when I print the PO out, all the ones display well.

I do the same activity to print SO,both preview and print works well,so it puzzles me where the issue should be.

Thank you!

Best regards.

    Hi,

    Somtime it depends on selected printer also. Through LOCL printer, text might appear clearly and with other local printers, it might not. If the text comes from standard text, please check contents once and even paragraph format used.

    These are some prilimiary steps to know whether the basic things are correct.

    Regards,

    Prasanth

    Hi,

    The issue is that the device type attached with the printer for printing the POs in R3 is not supporting the chinese characters whereas the physical printer supports the same.

    Dear Gurus,

    My China users is screaming at me for the differences between the print preview and the printout. We have already setup a printing device LOCLCN to print Chinese characters. The chinese fonts is ok but there is alignment issue between the print preview layout and the actual printout, which they can't accept. Kindly someone please advice if there is a patch or note from SAP for this system limitation?

    Desperate.

      Thanks for your info Andrew, but that 2 notes is for BASIS patch level 15, our company is already on BASIS patch level 18. It should already consisted in patch level 18. But we still face the same problem.

      Now our basis guy is suggesting for ECC6, access method for should use 'G - Front End Printing with Control Tech.' instead of using 'F - Printing on Front End Computer'.

    I faced the same issue. It solved when installed 'Eastern Asian Languages'. here is the path

    Control panel/Regional and Language options/languages/check on option 'instail eastern asian languages'. It will request you operating system CD.

    You can map to the folder from C drive. I don't remember the exact folder name.

    Thanks,

    Ram.
