Intermec C4 label printer


I'm experiencing a problem with an Intermec C4 label printer. I would like to print some text on a label when goods are received. I maintained the relevant output types so that the SapScript print program and SapScript form is triggered. This is working OK.

I don't want to print a barcode, but only some text (like material number and material description). I would like to use the printer in direct mode (e.g. send the following string to the printer to print the materialnumber: A24,312,0,4,1,1,N,"MATERIALNUMBER#: 000001").

The printer is printing something, but unfortunatelty a lot of 'rubbish' is printed as well. Also the string "A24,312,0,4,1,1,N" is printed; this string should determine the position of the text and not be printed.

SAP runs on the HP-UX operating system. Unfortunately there are no Intermec C4 Unix drivers available, so the printer is installed as being a generic Ascii printer (as well in the OS as in SAP).

Did someone manage to print labels from SapScript on an Intermec C4 printer by using direct mode input?

Thanks for any help!
