    1567114

      Hello,

       

      Need help for the printer Setup in EBS.

       

      I have a concurrent program where the output generated to XML and in subsequently print into Zebra printer.The Zebra Printer is configured in UNIX Server and we are using the same name as in server in EBS.But not sure of why its not getting printed from EBS.

       

      The same file content while running from Unix Server prompt gets printed.

       

      I am using the command from unix prompt : lp -d ZB12345 asset.xml

       

      Please need help on this.

       

      I have made an driver setup like this:

       

      lp -d$PROFILES$PRINTER -n$PROFILES.CONC_COPIES -t"$PROFILES.TITLE$"  $PROFILES$.FILENAME

       

      Please urgently need help on this

              Bashar.

              I assume that the report generates an XML file, right?

              Is the printer name you posted a real one (ZBR123456 vs ZB123456)?

               

              Have you tried to print the output file using the full command "lp -d -n -t ...."?

                Sorry for the wrong type its ZBR123456

                From the unix prompt its printing using the command : lp -d ZBR123456  asset.xml

                  Does it generate XML?

                  Did you try printing the generated output file manually?

                  Are you able to print other reports to this printer (text output)?

                    The Concurrent Program generates the XML.

                     

                    The same XML i tried to execute manually from Zebra printer,it produced an output.

                     

                    I did not print other reports in the same printer as its an Zebra printer and it takes XML file only.

                     

                    Here's the XML which generated fom EBS :

                     

                    <?xml version="1.0" standalone="no" ?>

                    <labels _FORMAT="E:Test.ZPL" _QUANTITY="1" _PRINTERNAME="ZBR123456" _JOBNAME="LBL101">

                    - <label>
                    <variable name="$$PARTNUMBER$$">A0001</variable>

                    <variable name="$$PARTDESCRIPTION$$">TEST A</variable>

                    <variable name="$$SERIALNUMBER$$">SR001</variable>

                    </label>

                    </labels>
