Hi all,

Trying to get a job running on our Xerox Versant 2100 printer.

What i want is to be able to select different trays based on what the data file requires.

I have tried the following

TRAYID=6 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY6
TRAYID=7 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY7
TRAYID=8 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY8
TRAYID=9 PAPER=[A4] NAME=TRAY9

And call each of these as i require (Shows in the PS under %%PageMedia: Tray6 etc)

However when on the printer, stock just gets pulled from the one tray.

Anybody used this function before, and could give some advice as to how to proceed?

Thank You.

Hey Saint Vipe,

Did you get an answer on this?

We use these commands to tray switch on the xerox printers we use.

TRAY "TRAYID=1 PAPER=[A4] NAME=PLAIN {WEIGHT=80 color=RED }"
TRAY "TRAYID=2 PAPER=[A4] NAME=PLAIN {WEIGHT=80 color=BLUE }"


from experience printers can be picky with casing on your tray calls/parameters too, so matching your script against the tray parameters on the printer itself.
