Friends, I really have no time for any development, however small, on this. Too many other higher priority projects on my list. These printers are used by many people, however infrequently, so having the printer attached and driven from a single workstation is not attractive, though I might be able to get somebody else to do that setup work. I don't know how people would like using central workstations for generating labels. I suppose I could have an old PC logged into our UniData application and somehow drive the printer from the server, but I don't know how to do that, though there was a recent thread that might be relevant. Yes, I could write an application that would send the correct control sequences and I don't think it would take much time (only because I've done a very similar task at another company), but that's not a zero time project, either.
Guess I'll have to recommend that we just upgrade to a better text printer for now.

Regards, Scott ----- Original Message ----- From: "Karjala Koponen" [EMAIL PROTECTED] ... Hello, I'm running UniData 5.2.15 on AIX 4.3.2 but will be going to UniData 6.0.9 on Solaris 2.8. We have two stand alone Epson LX300+ 9 pin dot matrix printers we use to print labels. They are defined as generic (ASCII) devices. The printers are old and the output is acceptable, at best. I'd like to replace the printers with label printers that will print on peel off labels of roll stock. ...
