Supress 'extra' Form Feed

Supress 'extra' Form Feed

Supress 'extra' Form Feed

(OP)
I am currently printing a graph student test data on one page.  The PCL command string contains a command &a-120V which, I believe, returns the cursor position to the top of the page after printing the graph.  Then the actual data file is printed on that graph. That works fine.  My problem is I get a blank page (with graph only) between each 'valid' page.  My data file does contain Form Feeds for top of page.  This is the PCL command string I am using:

lp25_pcrx_begin_^[E^[&k2G^[&l1O^[&f10y4X^[&l1L^[(8U^[(s0p16h0s3b4102T^[&k11.616H^[&l8C^[&a-120V^[&l66F_

What are the contents of the overlay, macro 10?

The formfeed may be in the overlay.

RE: Supress 'extra' Form Feed

Something in the code is causing the job to break the page boundary.  It my be one or two extra lines before the terminating form feed.  You need to do some line counting here.

Many printer have a Don't Print Blank Pages setting.
