Initially, the standard reports that are provided with the Stone Edge Order Manager will print on the default printer of the current (local) workstation. If the program is being used on a LAN, it might be preferable to have all reports of a specific type print on the same shared printer rather than at each workstation. For example, if a special form is being used to print Invoices or Packing slips, it is would be simplest to have that special form placed in a specific tray of a single printer that can be accessed by all workstations in the LAN.
