Sales Printer Codes window
Use the Printer Codes window to define the printer to which the Sales module prints during sales entry. If the Printer Code will be used by more than one workstation during sales entry, use the Windows® default setting. If the Printer Code will be used to print receipts on a Point of Sale workstation, select the receipt printer from the drop-down list at the bottom of the window.
The settings you define here only affect printing during sales entry in the Sales Order Entry window and Sales POS Register window. Other printing operations that are not conducted during sales entry (such as reports, posting, etc.) are controlled by the settings you defined in the Sales Order Entry Preferences and Sales Point of Sale Preferences windows on the Print Options tabs.
NOTE: Default Printer Codes have been established in Point of Sale for use with the Posiflex system. Order Entry and Point of Sale share Printer Codes. If you are installing either Order Entry or Point of Sale into a company for the first time, but not using a STAR printer, you must edit the default printer to avoid printing errors.
Printer Number
Enter a printer number of one or two numerals. Usually, your first printer is number 1 and your second printer is number 2 and so forth. This number will appear in the Lookup to help you identify the printer to use during sales entry.
Description
Enter a description that defines the printer’s use, such as Invoice printer on LPT1. This description will appear in the Lookup to further help you identify this printer.
Select Printer
Select the way in which the system should choose the printer for use during sales entry.
Use the Windows® default printer for sales entry
Select this option if you want the system to use your Windows® default printer during sales entry. The label under this option shows the Windows default printer.
Always use the following printer for sales entry
Select this option to choose a printer other than the Windows default during sales entry. If you select this option, you will then choose the printer to use during sales entry from the drop-down list.
Use this Printer as Default
Select this button if you want to change the Windows default printer to the printer you selected in the drop-down list under Always use the following printer for sales entry. You can verify the Windows® default by checking the printer listed under the Use the Windows default printer for sales entry option.
