Hi all,

I am having a problemPRINTING  a simple Spooled File in a 4245 Printer.

I am using an externally defined printer file with simple space, skip, edtcde 
and edtwrd
keywords. The DATA is simple text in Upper and Lower Case !

I get this INQUIRY message > CPA3303

 Message . . . . :   Attributes of file MQ2FORMA not supported for device
   PRT01. (C G H)

 Cause . . . . . :   Writer PRT01 found attributes of file MQ2FORMA
    on output queue PRT01 that are not supported for device PRT01.

 The error code, or codes, are 5.

     5 - IGC data (IGCDTA), IGC character rotation (IGCCHRRTT), IGC characters

          per inch (IGCCPI), or IGC shift-out and shift-in characters (IGCSOSI) 
not
          supported on device.

Here are the details for  printer file  MQ2FORMA .
DDS Sample:
       *
      A          R RCD001

      A                                      SKIPB(003)
      A            USER          10         4
      A            FDATE          8S 0    100
      A                                      EDTWRD('  -  -    ')
      A            FTIME          6S 0    112
      A                                      EDTWRD('  :  :  ')
      A                                   123
      A                                      'Page -'
      A            FPAGE          2S 0    130
      A                                      EDTCDE(Z)
      A          R RCD002
      A                                      SPACEB(001)
      A                                    40
      A                                      'CUSTOMER ORDER'
               etc ...

Other formats are just text with occasional skips,space, edtcde and edtwrd 
keywords only

Command used to create the printer file:

        CRTPRTF   FILE(MQ2FORMA) srcfile(QDDSSRC) PAGESIZE(68 132) LPI(8)
            CPI(10) OVRFLW(60) PAGRTT(*AUTO) UOM(*INCH) MAXNDRS(*NOMAX) 
AUT(*ALL)  LVLCHK(*NO)

And THERE ARE NOT ICG parameters in this CRTPRTF command.

The printer PRT01 was created with the following parameters:

 CRTDEVPRT DEVD(PRT01) DEVCLS(*LCL) TYPE(4245) MODEL(T12) PORT(3) +
          SWTSET(2) ONLINE(*YES) CTL(CTL03) FORMFEED(*CONT) +
          PRTERRMSG(*INQ) MSGQ(*LIBL/QSYSOPR) IMGCFG(*NONE) +
          TEXT('AS/400 Printer') +
          DEPLOCNAME(*NONE)

I also want to indicate that the majority of the spooled files that go through 
this printer have the definition
of  PAGESIZE(68 132) LPI(8) CPI(10) OVRFLW(60) but these are program described 
files.

When I see the attributes of the spooled file it indicates a correct definition 
of PAGESIZE, LPI, CPI and OVERFLOW.

Probably I am too BLIND to see the solution of this PROBLEM in front of me ...

I have exhausted my trial and error exercises .... Any Ideas Group ?

Thanks In Advance for your Suggestions / Answers
