The software uses printers for
printing reports and filling in deal data on your pre-printed
forms. Generally, forms printers are impact printers such as a
dot-matix printer like the Okidata Microline. This type of printer
is necessary to print on forms which make multiple carbon copies.
Report printers can be impact printers, ink jet printers, laser
printers, etc. These are used mainly for printing reports.
To set up your default printers from the Quick Start screen,
click on the Default Report Printer button or the Default
Forms Printer button, depending on which type of printer you
wish to set up. You may also set up or change your default printers
at any time by clicking on the File menu and selecting
either Default Report Printer or Default Forms
Printer, as illustrated below.
A small window opens with a list of printers installed on the
computer system. Click on and highlight the printer you wish to
use. Click the OK button to complete the process.
If the printer name does not appear for selection, you will need
to add the printer as a WindowsTM Printer using the
Add Printer option in Windows. Adding the printer to the
computer’s printer list will automatically add it to the program's
list as well.
Note: If your reports printer runs out of ink and
you want to print reports on the forms printer, change your default
report printer to the same printer that you selected as your
default forms printer. All printing will come out of the same
