Screen Overview

This screen lets you define how the report will be spooled prior to printing. The Hold feature is ideal if you want to see how the printed report will look (page length and width, page headers and footers, number of pages, etc.) before actually sending it to the printer. After this screen is completed, use Enter to continue to the next screen.

Send report to spool file

Choose Yes to send the printed report to your spool file before it is sent to the printer. Leave the field blank and the printer configuration will determine how the print file is handled. (Do not use No for any CU*BASE reports as it may cause conflicts at the printer.)

·     If you wish to hold the report in the spool file before sending it to the printer, be sure to choose Yes in the Hold field.
