Could be your pagesize is too long--should be 51 for landscape.

BTW, we've been doing a _lot_ of PCL stuff here, but we're moving away from
it, towards APF for graphical stuff. It seems to me you should not _need_
to use PCL for landscape--PRTF parameter PAGRTT(90) should take care of it.
Just don't use PAGRTT(*AUTO) for this kind of thing.

Good luck
