PCL / PJL Variables

PCL / PJL Variables

PCL / PJL Variables

I am trying to create a banner / seperator page using PCL.  The software will send the following code in the beginning of the job:

@PJL SET JOBATTR="JobAcct2=GVC11343494"
@PJL SET JOBATTR="JobAcct4=20041104072722"
@PJL SET JOBATTR="JobAcct5=a873bacb-ae5f-4b81-82d7-3c3078dbbfec"

And much more.

Can I use the JOBATTR varaible and set a large font (72 pt or so) and print that username (BRACYC in this case)?

I have tried all of the standard banner / separator page options and they seem to be ignored, ie they never get into the PCL going to the printer.  I can embed PCL code, but the username is only available in this variable.
