    not possible to send PRINT field data to printer.. (Word 2002 XP SR3)

    Hiya not sure if the correct forum is Word or Windows.

    I've a hp printer 9050dn PS.

    In Word a standard print works.

    However, in my Word doc header, if I insert a Print fieldcode to access files stored on the printers harddisk, I get the Word warning message "It will not be possible to send PRINT field data to the printe with they currently installed printer driver. Do you want to continue printing? Yes/No"

    This is the fieldcode...
    { PRINT p page"(MEL_LTR_PS)" run * MERGEFORMAT }

    If I click Yes to the message, the Word doc continues to print out correctly, with the file I want to call from the printers hard disk ie no error messages etc.

    I have the latest printer drivers for the HP printer for 9050dn PS (latest date stamp version year 2007 of the driver)
    the printer driver is setup in PS - postscript.

    Any ideas how why and how to clear this message?

    What happens if you remove <code>* MERGEFORMAT</code> from the field code? That probably shouldn't be in there...

    Re: not possible to send PRINT field data to print

    ive removed the " * MERGEFORMAT "

    the result is the Word warning message still displays.

    We currently have Lexmark MFD printers with files stored on the harddisk (flash memory). in the print fieldcode, the * MERGEFORMAT exists and no Word message displays on print. eg

    { PRINT p page "%ūginResource: file Lexmark_Overlay..... * MERGEFORMAT}

    I'm using print fieldcodes to send embedded print codes and commands to collect files stored on the printer, and use other printer features.


    p.s we're currently trialing hp printers

    Each printer has its own parameters, and I can't test with any of the ones in your environment. Do you have the relevant documentation from HP?

    ive done a web search. The post replies were very general & wont fix the issue. for example the replies went along the lines of "...theres a fieldcode in the document..."

    Ive escalated with HP Australia, and theyre escalated with HP U.S. We have a hp US contact so we'll see if they have come across this message in their travels. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> I await their reply.
