SmarfForm Direct printing - Formatting Error

We have developed a program to print a smart form directly to a printer.

The program would have the printer as the parameter.

Once executed, the program would directly print the smartform output to the printer.

We have a few printers: some printer would work fine, but a few of them do not work that it gives Formatting error. It does not even send to the spool.

After some investigation managed to find out in the printer configuration (TSP03D), there is a field called PATYPE. Those printers that works has the PATYPE - Z_HPLJ4 and those that do not work has the PATYPE = Z_HPLJ5.

We just changed all the printers to Z_HPLJ5.

Does anybody have similar problem? Can we handle this thru the program instead of changing the printer config.
