Zebra 105SL text file to Zebra LP2844

Zebra 105SL text file to Zebra LP2844

Zebra 105SL text file to Zebra LP2844

We use Zebra 105SL in our warehouse (several).  We also use outside contract warehouses (US & Canada).  We were trying to capture the Zebra 105SL output to a text file and email the file to the outside warehouses to save mailing our labels.  

If we print the text file on one of 105SL printers everything is fine (printer defined on local PC as generic), but outside warehouses say they cannot print the label.  

Is it possible to send a 105SL text file to print on a LP2844, and if so how?


RE: Zebra 105SL text file to Zebra LP2844

The 2 printers use different command languages:
105SL = ZPL
2844 = EPL
So the file for the 105SL will not work on the 2844.

You would need a 2844-Z to be able to use the same file.

Thanks for the info, that is what I was afraid of.

But, I sincerely do appreciate your reply.
