Subject: Re: Printing the Euro symbol

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 sides

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
printers

As always - any answers gratefully accepted
