HELP !!!

Hi folks.

Just got the InfoPrint 40 in. It is replacing an HP 5SI that had an MPI
Technologies card and IPDS SIMM in it allowing it to be an AS/400 IPDS
printer.

A 3rd party app prints Invoices and Statements to preprinted forms. The
vendor had to mod these apps for us to print on this printer (because
they normally assume that EVERYONE is doing impact printing. IS this
1999 ??? !!! ;-) ).

When I send the print job to the InfoPrint 40 it does NOT print QUITE
the same as the same job does on the HP 5SI. It seems to "spread" the
print out a little more, horizontal, left to right as it goes across the
page. It also is not right vertically top to bottom after the first
line...

I'm wondering if this doesn't have something to do with the IPDS fonts
but have NO idea which one to try changing. It defaults to 416 which is
Courier Roman Medium.
If this is an AFP job, it looks, whether it is for the HP of the IBM
shouldn't it be the same (i.e. the definition in the AFP description
controls printing ?) unless there is a font issue ?

Something else I have noticed is that the "border" on the IBM print is
SMALLER than on the HP and this may be causing a problem...

As far as parameters that I can check from the HP to the IBM, everything
is set to match (printer type, CPI, font, etc.).

Any ideas before we pay the vendor to redo the Invoice and Statements
programs again ?

Thanks !

Chuck
