SAP® provides its own spooling and printing system within the mySAP Business Suite solution® or SAP R/3® application, enabling a uniform interface for all printing functions that's independent of system platforms.
In the SAP R/3 spool system, a device type contains the information needed to format data for output on a particular type of printer or fax. A typical R/3 device type contains the same information that a printer driver does in a Microsoft Windows system -- all the information needed to make an output-ready data stream for the device.
In those cases when SAP R/3 does not include a device type for a particular type of printer or output device, a new device type must be supplied by the manufacturer. Lexmark supplies device types for use with Lexmark printers that have the Optra Forms electronic forms printing solution installed.
