    Hi,

    Which deviec type do you use? Device types for dot matrix printers like e.g. EPESCP9 don't cntain any commands for landscape print as dot mtrix printers cannot not ususally set orientation.

    Try printing via windos and device type SAPWIN.

    Regards,

    Aidan

    Goto SPAD tcode

    Click on Full adminstrationa and goto device types TAB now display the page formats,

    Here check for the page format you are using, double click on the page format u are using then check its orientation which is defined.

    Might be possible that the page format you are using is defined only for potrait.

    Hi Ravi,

    my basis consultant created the device type ZEPESCP,

    LP02 is assigned for DOT MATRIX printer.

    and page format for LANDSCAPE is Z297*210 format in my smart form(FORM ATTRIBUTES->OUTPUTOPTIONS).

    But the print is coming in only portrait format not in landscape. Have you found the solution for it. If Yes, Please reply me as soon as possible.

    Thanks
