I think that this problem is probably on the iSeries.  It sounds like
you're running a program that uses a print file or override where you
are leaving the form type blank.

I could be mistaken, but I don't think lp5250d is involved with the form
type at all.   I think this is handled by OS/400 before it even sends any
data to lp5250d.

Perhaps a CL program (or similar) was changed to add an OVRPRTF command
to your new lp5250d printer, and a mistake was made on the OVRPRTF
command?   Or maybe the print file itself was changed, and the form type
was accidentally erased?

If you run this same report to a SNA/Twinax attached printer, do you
have different results?
