I am working on sap script .

In which I am facing problem in printing Chinese character.

In the spool(print preview) I am able to see Chinese characters printed but while printing on a paper it is appearing as '#' Characters.

I am using Font Family as COURIER in basic settings and If I try changing Font to CHSONG(Chinese character font), alignment getting distorted.

I have tried several options available in SDN, but not able to find exact solution on the issue.

Please help me with proper solution.

We are facing similar issues for smartform.
In print preview we get right output. All chinese text is in SimSun font. In print preview we get correct display. All text appears in SimSun font. While printing one field changes to another font. Rest all fields print correctly in SimSun font. One field changes to other font which looks odd.

Please share your experience how you resolved it.

HI friend,

Try changing the device type which suits the Chinese font. There are many device types which support device types.

Example : CNSAPWIN.

Just try this friend. If you face queries please revert back to me i will help you.
