Hello All,

There is requirement to print two sides for printer (MXBZL004) from SAP.
Printer Details in SAP -------------------------------

Model : HP LaserJet 4350

Access Method : L

Device Type : ZHPLJ4

When giving print from desktop with any document , it is printing two sides (but not from SAP).

I had changed the ouput device configuration in SAP as Output Attributes - Print Mode ( Duplex: print on both Sides), still unable to print two sides.

Kindly suggest how to print two sides from SAP ?

Thanks Ganesh

Please, see note 1565113 - Duplex Printing as a checklist.

The setting in SPAD for duplex only works for certain device types that use the "new" list driver. try using device type HPLJ4000. Also this only worked for ABAP lists and Smart Forms until recently.

If it is a SAPscript form, you need to install the kernel patch of note 1570644 and also set the parameter SPAD_TRAY_SAPSCR from the note.

I concur with @Aidan's post, I was using the device type PDF1 for a short while; then the invoice team asked for duplexing, checking the box in SPAD was useless.

After switching to the device type POST2 invoices continued to print and duplex started working.

Hello Warring/Aidan,

I tried after changing from ZHPLJ4 to POST2 and HPLJ4000. It didn't work.

The spool request is not smart form or SAPscript.... It is ABAP List type...

Thanks for help.... Can you suggest any more option to check.
