It is a syntax error.

It should read:


You might be able to get away with this:


quotes have to be in sets of two and elements have to be seperated by semicolons.

Sounds like a driver issue that is adding extra characters into the print script. Make sure your printer supports PostScript or PCL. PCL is the most common and works with all printer. PostScript requires a PostScript Chip installed in the printer. Download the latest driver either from the Printronix website or

Why would bar code print both vertically and

This is I think due to the data being sent to your printer. On a Z4m the width is 4 inch and whatever is beyond is not printed. On your Z6M the coordinates are valid so your printer will print the code.

There are two guides on that machine.

One guide will make sure that the media is locked down and secured. if it isn't it will cause drifting.

There is also another guide around the thermal head before printing that guides the labels before it prints. It either white or or it could be a green color.

are you using the takeup roller on the printer to hold the wax paper? If you are is it straight on the take up roller?
