Many moons ago, the company I worked for had a policy in the warehouse "Receive on green".  The printer in the warehouse always had green paper for receiving manifests.

One night, someone put in white paper and we printed hundreds of receivers on white.  They freaked out - "How can we receive shipments?".  They solved their own problem - loaded green paper into the copier and copied all the receivers and then tossed the white copies.

Instead of the whole form being a color (page 1 white, page 2 blue, etc.)
could they do a line at the top, or bottom, that's a particular color?
Sort of like instead of a preprinted line on each page saying
'Our copy', 'Customer Copy', 'shipping copy', etc, print that and do color
highlighting on that line? A whole page would be a waste of ink but one
line?
Failing the printer having color capability you could just print that line
and teach people to read.

Sent by: "MIDRANGE-L" <midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx>



Our client would like to replace the printing of 5 part forms (each a
different color) on a pin-feed with collated forms (not connected) with
the
same colors (in the same order) on a laser printer.

If these forms only printed on one page, using CL to change the number of
copies would work. However, these forms frequently exceed one page (which
would create page 1 white, page 2 blue, etc.).

The apparent best solution on IBM i would be a parameter on OVRPRTF that
would allow each page to be printed x times (default = 1), but none
exists.
(Client is on V7R1.) [Note: System z does have such a parameter in its
JCL.]

I have developed a procedure to utilize System i Navigator, but it adds
too
much time to the printing process.

I also know that I could table everything inside the program and print
each
page 5 times. However, this problem does not appear to be unique, so an
easier solution may exist. [If possible, the client would like to save
development dollars.]

Any recommendations?

Thanks,
Don

PS I did see the November 2010 discussion 'Printer for 4-part forms'.
