Thank you for the tip! But the problem remains:

There are, already, some printers attached. Most of them are attached
through Windows Client Access. If I order a print to a printer, lets call it
Client Access (CA) printer, and then release the job, it prints without any
more intervention. But that same printer, started through lp5250d, gives the
paper msg. Even if I order the print to the CA printer and, on the spool
changing the queue atributes to print on the lp5250d printer, it gives the
same msg.

Its very odd, but it could be an iseries issue.

I'm checking again the as400.

Meanwhile do you have any more sugestions? 

Thank you for your time!

Rui Polido

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?
