Setting up an invoice printer

This hierarchy is used to determine the printer for invoices:

  1. Printer that is specified on auto printing stored reports
  2. Storeroom printer that is specified in Product Warehouse Description Setup
  3. Invoice Printer that is specified in Product Warehouse Description Setup-Extended
  4. Default printer that is specified in SA Operator Setup

If you use stored reports, you must create a stored report for each Storeroom warehouse that is used when invoices for Storeroom-managed products are automatically generated. Automatic invoice generation occurs for these types of products:

  • Distributor-owned products
  • Regrind In and Bill on Receipt products if selected in the Auto Invoice Shipped Orders field on the warehouse record
  • Products identified for Recovery Billing are processed

To set up an invoice printer:

  1. Select System Administrator > Setup > Printer.
  2. Create a record for the remote printer.
    See the printer manufacturer’s documentation for specific print code settings that must be applied.
  3. Select Product > Setup > Warehouse Description.
  4. Select the warehouse to assign the invoice printer to.
  5. Click Extended.
  6. Select Print Invoices at Shipping.
  7. Specify the remote printer in the Invoice Printer field.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Select Sales > Entry > OEE Reports > OEEPI.
  10. Select New > Stored to create an @ stored report.

    See information about auto printing stored reports in the online help.
