I've a network printer "HP Laserjet 4250" configured with an output accessory "Sheet Stapler/Stacker".
With these accessory all pages of the same spool are stapled together.
For transaction VL02N we would print n copies of the same delivery using smartforms in this printer, so all copies will be stapled.
The problem is that in SPAD Copy Counter options if we set the choice "Pass copy counter to the host spool system" only one copy is printed;
it seems that copy counter parameters has no effects.
If we set the choice "Pass copies as separate Output Requests", the spool system will send a separate print request for each copy of a document to be printed; but with this option multiple copies are not stapled since they belong to different spool.
SAP System is ERP 6.0 EHP5 based on windows /SQL 2008 and the last kernel patch.
Any idea to solve the problem ?
By default the number of copies is transferred to the OS host spooler
and handled by it.
The flag to pass copies is set in the Output Device definition via
transaction SPAD as follows:
SPAD -> Output Device -> <Output Device name> -> Output Attributes ->
'Pass Copy Counter to Host Spool System'
Can you please change this flag to:
'Pass Copies as Separate Output Request(in SAP System)'
if I use the flag "Pass Copies as Separate Output Request(in SAP System)" the SAP system generates n spools for n copies of documents. With this option all copies are not stapled toghether because they belong to different spools.
First option "Pass copy counter to the host spool system"do not works.
Any idea to solve this problem ?
