Setting specific printers for specific reports.

A guide on making certain reports print from specified printers depending on the workstation they are printed from.

Acctivate allows users to assign specific reports to print from a certain printer by default. This can be helpful when printing product labels with barcodes, or to simplify the use of multiple printers in the same office. 

  1. In Acctivate, go to File -> Manage Reports
  2. Locate the report you'd like to set a printer for.
  3. Click the Edit button.
  4. Click on the Printer Assignments tab.
  5. Select the first blank row in the list and type in the workstation name.
