Access

Print Print Preview
Icon: Center Center
Menu: File→Print File→Print Preview
Short Cut: F12 <Alt> <Shift><P>

Restrictions

The Print and Print Preview buttons are enabled only if a report Process is defined in the Tab Tab of the Window, Tab & Field Window.

Description

Print Preview (Image:Icon_PrintPreview24.png) will open a preview of the defined report for the Tab being viewed. Depending on the type of report, the Preview can be printed, archived, exported, filtered and configured.

Print (Image:Icon_Print24.png) will print the report directly to the default printer.

There is a setting in the Tools→Preferences form called Always Print Preview. If this is selected, the Print and Print Preview functions will behave in the same way.

The default printer is selected in the Defaults Tab of the Log In window. See Logging In to the Client for more information.

Depending on the type or report process attached to the Window Tab, the nature of the report can vary from a standard report to a specialized document such as an order, invoice or a shipping document. The type of report process is completely configurable in the Application Dictionary. See Report Processes for more information.
