MPE (HP3000) - report is not fitted to the paper after printing to new printer. large font

I have following codes in my job to print report TESTRPT1, and it works good, and the printed report looks good as well.

 

!NBS

  ALTER #*,TESTRPT1;STATE=READY

  COPY  #*,TESTRPT1 TO PRISERV;LPR;DEST='TEST4P0X';PRINTER=RAW

!EXIT

 

Recently, we were replacing the old printer TEST4P0X with new printer TEST11PRN07, and we changed the codes to following ones, also  we have added the new printer to HOSTS.NET.SYS.... The updated codes work good, but the  printed report is not fitted to the paper, it is very large font. can you please give me some suggestions, thanks. 

!NBS

 ALTER #*,TESTRPT1;STATE=READY

 COPY  #*,TESTRPT1 TO TEST11PRN07;LPR;DEST='TEST11PRN07';PRINTER=RAW

 EXIT

you're using NBSPOOL and not native mpe printing.

 

please take a look at this: http://www.hpmmsupport.com/MPE%20Manual/B3933-90002.pdf

(preferrably even download it so that you have a copy!)

 

if you jump to pdf page 108 (pg 3-63) you'll see a discussion about printer setup.  i suggest you try one of the options other than raw.
