  • Could Not Start Print Job?

    Starting yesterday at around 2:30pm PC-Dmis will not print a report unless I go into the last execution report mode and use F4. This is happening in all our part programs.

    The program reaches the print command at the bottom:

    C2 =COMMENT/YESNO,NO,
    , Would you like a print-out?
    ,
    IF/C2.INPUT=="YES"
    PRINT/REPORT,EXEC MODE=END,$
    TO_FILE=ON,AUTO=13,$
    TO_PRINTER=ON,DRAFTMODE=OFF,$
    TO_DMIS_REPORT=OFF,FILE_OPTION=INDEX,FILENAME=,$
    REPORT_THEORETICALS=NONE,REPORT_FEATURE_WITH_DIMEN SIONS=NO,$
    PREVIOUS_RUNS=DELETE_INSTANCES
    END_IF/
    IF/C2.INPUT=="NO"
    PRINT/REPORT,EXEC MODE=END,$
    TO_FILE=ON,AUTO=8,$
    TO_PRINTER=OFF,DRAFTMODE=OFF,$
    TO_DMIS_REPORT=OFF,FILE_OPTION=INDEX,FILENAME=,$
    REPORT_THEORETICALS=NONE,REPORT_FEATURE_WITH_DIMEN SIONS=NO,$
    PREVIOUS_RUNS=DELETE_INSTANCES
    END_IF/

    When it asks, "would you like a print out?" and I click "Yes" I get an error message PCDLRN that says, "Could not start print job."

    When I check my print options everything is still set correctly. Nothing has changed from where it was set yesterday - or every day for the last 2 years.

    I recently copied all the .prg's into a folder on the local drive after everyone's suggestions last week. The settings still output a .pdf to the part folder on one of our network drives, but this didn't interfere with anything in the last few days - so I can't see it making a difference.

    Again, if I view report mode and hit F4 then it prints with no problem - which also tells me the settings are still correct.

    Anybody have any idea what might be going on here?

        I've had this happen to me numerous times. Make sure the printer your sending to is still default. I usually have to re-start my PC several times. Sometimes i've tried deleting the print command & putting it back in.

        No rhyme or reason for it happening either. Sometimes i fix it in a few minutes sometimes not.
