hmm.  well, no one else has answered it yet, (that i know of) so i'll take a
stab at it.  a couple of things to check.

are you using the pagrtt(0) in your override?   if so, you may have an error
in your override statement.  like the wrong printer name, etc.

what you can do is view your spool file in intermediate mode, and then put an
8 in front of the entry.  from there you can see all kinds of attributes about
the job.  if the orientation is not 0, your override statement has a problem.

waiting for simon to tell me where i messed up this time...
