Shot in the dark here. Is the windows printer using a PLC5. PLC6 or
Postscript driver and how is the iSeries talking to the printer? Or some
other protocol? Make the iSeries match that protocol.

If you want to go really low level, (which I would because I don't know
anything about printers) look at the traffice being sent to the printer
with wireshark. See if you could muck with the windows settings till it
looks more like the iSeries traffic until euros break in Windows. Then do
the opposite on the iSeries.

Of course for you reverse the last two steps. I'm just more comfortable
with configuring windows printer settings, so I'd try to break it on
windows, then google how to configure iSeries printing to do the opposite
change setting.

Hope someone has a better solution than mine though.

Hi everyone
Before I forget – we are on V5r4

To cut a long story short – we are having problems printing the Euro
symbol (€) on a number of different printers
hp LaserJet P4015n

Canon LBP 6780

We can see the Euro symbol when we look at the spool file on the iSeries,
but when we print the spool file – it prints as a small box with concave

We have managed to print a word document containing the Euro to one of
these printers – so we believe that it is NOT the printer

We have the chrid set to 695 1140 on both the printer file and both

As always - any answers gratefully accepted
