Resolving printing problem where columns are omitted from print job

If a print job from AS/400 is omitting part of the text, the printer defintion table (PDT) may need to be changed to one with a smaller font.

When doing a print screen from the AS/400 the last two columns are ommited from the printout. We are using PDT basic-ASCII and are printing to a Lexmark Optra T614 printer. Any ideas?
I'd suggest that what is really being omitted is a certain number of characters, since this sounds like a font/CPI issue. You will have to change the printer definition table (PDT) to one with a smaller font.
