Labels printed in Dot Matrix Printer

Hi Experts,

I am new to the label creation.

I need to create a new label which will be printed using a Epson Dot matrix printer.

I got an idea how to do it in zebra printing. But still I am wondering how it can be done for a dot matrix.

Whether it is same like zebra programming or dot matrix do have some other coding language to display the label?

Could you please explain me on this?

Thanks & Regards,

    there is a huge difference between a standard dot matrix printer and a zebra printer.

    a zebra printer mworks with ZPL II commands. All other printer works otherwise.

    However. If you use smartforms the code in the smartform is converted to ZPL|| automatically. ( I think you can see it in the spool but i am not sure)

    If you use sapscript you have to code the ZPLII yourself.

    On an other printer you can work with normal commands. You have only to take care that the printer has a porper driver. Ad fthe form has the proper pagelayout.

    This will do.

    Gr., Frank
