There could be multiple reason for such errors like:

  • Device issue
  • Driver issue on printer host

Solution to error LZPL driver does not support SAPscript:

I’ll elaborate step by step procedure we had followed to correct the error in our case:

  • Check the printer specification:

For our system, physical printer model was ZEBRA ZDesigner S4M.
and the driver used for it was ZDesigner S4M-300dpi ZPL.

Now if you are using centralized print server, make sure Print server has the exactly same printer drivers for the printer.

  • Check the correct device type:

T-code: SPAD

In our case, we used the LB_ZEB2 device type, which worked correctly.
Now test print again:

Spool should be successfully completed.
