Publish always fails. Is this a known problem?

I started looking at the system variables for AutCAD P&ID 2013 for publishing. I tried setting PUBLISHCOLLATE to 0 instead of the initial value of 1. That seems to have done the trick. I've been able to publish using the same old page setups that I've been trying since AutoCAD P&ID 2013 was installed. All sheets publish without errors. Publish seems to fail after the first drawing when PUBLISHCOLLATE is set to 1.
Have you set all the page setups correctly in the drawings you are trying to publish?
The screen shot doesn't seem to be uploaded, could you attach it again?
The attached plot & publish details pdf shows two plots. The one that was successful I used publish and just loaded one drawing. The other was unsuccessful. I had several drawings loaded, but it was using the same page setup and going to the same plot device as the one that was successful. For some resaon when you load more than one drawing into publisher it can't find the plot device even though I select the same page setup.
Any news on this issue? I have a project with well over 160 drawings and growing every day. It needs to be printed atleast once a week every week. It is very time consuming to print these out one-by-one every week.
