    SIMS FMS Printer problems

    We are having problems printing cheque runs from all pc's on this 2003 Server system which runs through SQL. It appears to hang for approx. 10/15 mins before completing this procedure. All other aspects of printing within SIMS FMS are great and also when we print directly from the Server it is immediate and fine. Tried all obvious solutions eg. local printer install, closing various services eg Nero or java updates & used PRIMO PDF. Has anyone had this problem and solved it?

    Whats the exact printer and print driver your using? PCL5/5e/6 ??

    Most printers *should* work without issues as long as you're using a PCL5 driver

    This is a long standing issue that Capita were very slow to acknowledge and are very slow to do anything about. We've found that using PCL 5 instead of PCL 6 helps in most cases.
