Hi Board!

 

My FM solution has multiple clients running from FMS13. There is a script that the operator runs from a button that takes data from their screen and prints a label.

 

If I want to have networked printers, how do i specify that printer within the script? If 3 operators have 3 separate FM clients and next to each is a networked printer, how do I get the print job from Operator 1 to print out on Printer 1, and Op2 out of P2 etc etc?

 

If I make the script and it is called by the operator, won't it specify the printer that was originally specified in the script, rather than the one that the client is physically next to it?

How do i approach solving this problem?

 

Thanks,

Harry

You can present the print dialog so that the operator can check for the correct printer. The FM client will use whatever printer is installed on the workstation. Be it a local or networked printer. Windows knows how to actually print to the printer, FM just prints to the selected installed printer.

If you name each printer the same on each client, they can still point to different physical printers, and FM won't know the difference. Or care.

I do the same at my workplace. Different label printers in diiferent locations. FM just prints as instructed and it comes out at the right printer. Provided the correct type printer is installed.
