Print Formatting Problem On Specific Printers

20 Views

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:

      WRITE: / 'INSTALLATION:', 
      15 GSTR_REP-ANLAGE COLOR 6 INVERSE ON.

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

      FORMAT COLOR 5.
      WRITE 'Write some text'.
      FORMAT COLOR OFF.

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?

Thanks
