If you know the name of the printer, set WINPRINT-NO-OF-PRINTERS to 0, and set WINPRINT-NAME to the name of the printer as given in the Printers folder under Settings. Specify any settings you desire and call WIN$PRINTER using WINPRINT-SET-PRINTER.


If you want the Windows spooler to format the pages of your report, but you want to use a particular printer, assign your print file to:

PRINTER1 -Q \\printername

 where printername is the printer you desire to print to
