Printing issues in production

Hello, I

We are having some printing issues with the term contract (ME21N) in production although everything is working fine in all other systems. I created a new term contract in production and when saved it stayed in my spool and failed to print immediately. I then printed a different FI document in production (that launches the print daemon) and it printed fine to the local printer, without closing the print daemon window I tried printing the term contract and it printed fine this time. So it appears that somehow in production the print daemon window is not able to launch when a term contract is created/saved.

Any idea or any suggestion?

    This is not an ABAP issue, based on the description. This needs to be resolved by a functional consultant (who will need to check the output) and Basis person (who may need to check on the spool / printer side).

    If there was an ABAP issue, then spool request would not be generated and there would be an error in the processing log or a short dump.

    It seems that you're not familiar with output determination and I'm not sure how to explain it in a single post...

      Hi Rajat,

      Check for your default setting for the spool requests

      t-code SU01D -go to Defaults and make sure Output Immediately check box is enabled under SPOOL section.

    This is issue related to printer configration, so configure the printer which resemble the other system which is giving the correct output by contracting the basis team. may be your issue will be resolved.

    As it was told in previous thread if it is ABAP issue spool will not be generated.
