Our Canon printers use PJL for that kind of thing. If you can figure out how to send PJL, there is a staple command. something like

Our forms package sends PJL and we can set parameters there. I would think there would be a way to do that with a regular spool file as well.

I did a wireshark trace to find the parameter I wanted from the PC driver and then put that in the PJL string in the forms package.

Looks like you can use a custom work station customizing object to do it.

I have a Canon iR5070 set up as a remote outq.  I've been asked to staple and hole punch some print jobs.  There's an option to staple, but I can't get it to work.  I tried both printer types recommended by IBM (*HP4 & *LEXOPTRAT) and all four staple positions.  The document prints but doesn't staple.  Any ideas what to try next?

As for the hole punching, I don't even see an option for that.  Is that something a Workstation customizing object or User defined option might solve?
