    All - I've created a custom program to print labels on a Zebra printer.  I basically copied the way AP290 has the labels set up in the .prt file.  The new Zebra printer is hooked up on the network, defined in prtdef, etc.  When I try to send the output (from the print manager) to the printer (I select the printer from the dropdown in print manager) - I get the message that the print file was printed but nothing physically prints on the printer.  After working with others for 3 days of trying to figure out why - one of our DBAs told me it is because it isn't a valid "label" file.  I know next to nothing about printers - so I'm hoping someone can help.  She said that the Zebra printer is expecting something that tells it that the file is a label file and if it isn't "told' that, nothing will print even though Lawson told me it was printed.  This is such a simple program, I can't believe I'm struggling like this just to get the labels to print.  Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?  THANK YOU so much in advance!!

    It appears I need to somehow embed Zebra language into my file - but I have no clue where to start. Has anyone done this before?
