SNA Server Print Service Doesn't Process Carriage Return Properly

Article ID: 169855

Article Last Modified on 7/15/2004



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 3.0 Service Pack 4
  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0



This article was previously published under Q169855


SYMPTOMS

When an SCS 0x0D is sent in an LU1 data stream to force a carriage return without a line feed (to do underlines), SNA Server Print service ignores 0x0D when Bypass GDI and PDF (printer definition file) are selected. The entire print job should be treated as EBCDIC transparent data and passed directly to the printer after being converted to ASCII, except for SCS codes which are mapped to the characters to send to the printer using a PDF. The following is a sample PDF:

   /*    PRINTER SESSION DEFINITION FILE FOR SNA Server Printers    */ 
   /*
   */ 
   BEGIN_MACROS
   LFF EQU 0A
   FFF EQU 0C
   CRR EQU 0D
   END_MACROS
   /*  Parameters
   */ 
   CARRIAGE_RETURN=CRR
   NEW_LINE=CRR LFF
   LINE_FEED=LFF
   FORM_FEED=FFF CRR
   /*                        End of Definition File
                

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
