Setting Default Printers
Use Printer Default Maintenance (36.13.4) to assign default output devices to users. This is only the default; you can change it to any valid device when you run the program. You can apply a record to all users by entering an asterisk (*) in the User ID field.
Note: Default output devices apply only to reports; the default device for inquiries is always terminal.
You can specify devices for a user ID or a combination of user ID and menu selection. This can be useful for specialized tasks such as sending checks to a check printer; the same user can have different default output devices for different programs.
The default does not necessarily have to be a physical printer; you can also choose to send output to the terminal, page, a window (Windows UI only), or an e-mail recipient.
