Q

Can't print in color

Hello, I was wondering how we can enable printing in color in SAP. I have tried LP01 and not everything prints in color. When I try saving the report as local file, the format goes bad. Can you help please?

One way to do this would be to set up an output device with access type F (Printing on frontend computer). The host printer would then be "__DEFAULT" Device type would equal "SAPWIN." The output device is typically named "LOCL" (for example on OSS) When you print to this output device, saplpd will be spawned on the local PC, with the printout being sent to the locally defined default printer. The nice feature when using this is that you can print to all sorts of devices as long as the local PC supports it (I once used this method to print to a plotter). Hope this helps.
