Select a Printer

In this Topic: Show


The Select a Printer screen is called from most locations in the program where the user can print a report and it may have a different title depending upon the calling function.

This menu allows the user to select another printer other than the workstation's default printer. This menu is controlled by the global system parameter, UsePrinterMenu, which affects the behavior of the program on all workstations. If this parameter is set to FALSE, the program will not offer the user the option of selecting a different printer on any workstation in the complex.

Click the Show link next to "In This Topic" at the top of this page to see a series of links in outline form, which can be used to quickly jump to that section of the topic.

In addition, major topics may provide a brief synopsis of a field's purpose or direct the reader to the appropriate section of the topic by scrolling over the image. To return to the previous location within the same page, right-click the mouse and select [Back].

If clicking a field directs the reader to a different Knowledge Base topic, it will open in a new tab or window, leaving the currently viewed topic open. The browser's settings determine whether a new tab or window is opened.
