Print on Green Bar

By dennisbv ·
WE are going to have to replace some Line printers
(dot matrix) they use Green bar paper I tink 14 x 17 and my boss wants me to find out how we can use them to print Excell reports. I have tried to use a custom paper setup but cannot get it to fill the paper. We have one user that uses a HP 1220c and is able to use single sheets by picking Tabloid paper. I don't have any choice like that.
Is there any way I can get these to work.

I suspect that you have a "generic" driver for the basic printer, or printer family.

You need the specific driver for the printer that supports the full carrige width.

Since you didn't specify the printer, I can't recommend a specific solutionfor you.

The one I tryed to test with was an Oki Data Micro line 5**. I installed this printe which is what is used on our RS6000 system. I installed it on a pc and tryed to print on green bar from excell. I was not given the choice of the correct paper.

Start with the correct driver form Okidata.

Here is the link I found.

http://my.okidata.com/pp-ML5**.nsf/openingdrivermenu?OpenFrameSet

Under the Knowledge Base / Applied Solutions, is an article to create custom paper sizes in NT.

Between the driver, and the article, you should be up and running.
