Print Formatting Problem On Specific Printers

When printing an ABAP list in LOCL mode, on certain printers the grayscale backgrounds of fields print as slashes ////// and others print as crosshatched.

For example, on a Canon 2200 printer,

this code prints as crosshatched background behind the text:


This code prints as slashes in background, behind the text:

      WRITE 'Write some text'.

On an HP 8150 printer, the same report prints a grayscale background for the color 5 example, and a plain background for the color 6 example. It does not matter which output device is chosen, the output is the same.

Any ideas on how to resolve this, so the report prints the same way on all printers?

    It really all depends on the printer drivers being used for each model of printer. I would say that if you want all the printers to print the same, buy all they printer model. I know that this is not realistic, but I think that you are stuck with what ya got. I don't know if changing the print device attributes at the OS level of SAP will help or not.
