Hi list!

This case is about the margins on a form. This pre-printed form was being used in a big dot-matrix printer and now we are moving it to laser. The issue is that, before, the printer was able to print the 1st line above the pre-printed line (top of the form with no margins) and line 2 was being printed in the first line on the form and so on. In essence, I can't print above my pre-printed line:

a) Printer is already printing other forms on drawer 1.

b) I need to print this new form on drawer 2.

c) Printer is DEVTYPE(*IPDS)

d) PRTF is not using SKIPB for the header (it was before)

e) I am using OVRPRTF command to print this.

f) I tried to use FORMDF(F100S) in the OVRPRTF command. (http://info.rpp.ricoh-usa.com/help/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.infoprint.rpd.aix.base%2Faiw00r3ibmprinters.html)

g) I tried to use FRONTMGN(0 0) in the OVRPRTF command.

h) I cannot change the margins on this printer because then I will affect all the printer (all drawers), affecting then the way the forms are being printed in drawer 1 (based on RICHO tech support info)

So I decided to share this with the list and see if anybody has this scenario with the same printer or a similar scenario that can share your experience.

Thanks in advance,
