SAP Script: Font on Printed Output different from Previewed Output

Dear all,

Business Scenario: Printing of PO depending on the communication language set for vendor.

Problem: Font on printout will be substituted whenever vendor's communication language is ZH. Printout for EN is fine. Preview for both language are fine.

Investigation: I've check Printer Spool under RAW Data and fonts are not substituted.

System Configuration:

SAP Script for Purchase Order

Language: ZH

Codepage: 8400

Device Type: CNSAPWIN

Font: Font uploaded using RSTXPDF2

Univers 57

Univers 47


SAPLPD: No Font Substitution used.

Printer: HP5100


No font substitution is used for SAPLPD.

All fonts already installed in the front-end system.

Printer used is HP5100 in Windows 2000 with SP4 using latest PCL6 driver from HP.

Printer setup is configured to print true type font as graphics.

Have anybody encountered this issue before. I'm looking forward for a solution. Thank in advance.

    If you are using translated version of SAP Script for each language, open the SAPScripts using SE71 and do a comparison of Paragraph formats you used and if their is any difference also investigate fonts used in paragraph definitions respectively. Their is a possibility you might be using different paragraph formats for translated versions....

      Hi Reddy,

      Thanks for your reply. We have indeed maintained a translated version of SAP Script. However, we used the same font for language ZH. And these font has been converted to Tahoma instead of Univers 47 when printed on screen. Please let me know if i've missed out any steps.

    Hi Leonard !

    Compare all the setting of your printer with SAP Standard Printer LP01 .Spec. Compare O/P Type .

    If any thing is missing add through SPAD .
