Unable to print on custom page size tray

Product Name: VersaLink B600/B610 Printer
Operating System: IBM AS/400


I am unable to print on proper tray on B610.

I did configure the WSCST file as per IBM and Xerox instructions on XTOOLS0924 / XTOOLS1026 library wihout success.

Every time I get exactly the same error.

I did amend XRXVLX file and a *HP5 generated WSCST file but wihout success.

Thank you

Giovanni .

Printing to a Drawer with Custom Page Size Paper for HP Printers

Some HP LaserJet and compatible printers support the use of custom paper sizes in one or more paper trays. A modified Workstation Customizing Object (WSCST) can access custom page sizes by adding a Page Size Entry (PAGSIZE) tag to specify the HP PCL5 command needed to select the custom page size, and adding a Drawer Page Size (DWRPAGSIZ) tag to assign that custom page size to a specific drawer number.

For example, to access a paper tray with the non-standard paper size of 11.0 x 14.0 inches using drawer 3, the Page Size Entry (PAGSIZE) tag with a page width of 15840 (11.0 x 1440 = 15840) and a page length of 20160 (14.0 x 1440 = 20160) would need to be added, as follows:

      DATA ='1B266C31303141'X.

The DATA portion of this PAGSIZE tag contains the hexadecimal equivalent of the HP PCL Page Size control '<Esc>&l#A' where # = 101, which indicates a custom page size. For more information on this, refer to the section titled HP PCL Paper Size Command below.

A Drawer Page Size Entry (DWRPAGSIZ) tag with a DRAWER value of 3 (to correspond to the DRAWER parameter in the spooled file attributes) and the same page width and page length also would need to be added, as follows:

         DRAWER = 3
         PAGWTH = 15840
         PAGLEN = 20160.

Note: For this to be completely effective, you must change or override the printer file to set the Source drawer (DRAWER) parameter to 3, and should also make certain that the paper length (page length in inches x the lines per inch) and the paper width (page width x the characters per inch) come out to 11.0 x 14.0 inches.
