    I know that I can set up a specific printer to print checks and have any remittance advices print to another printer, but I am looking to use the same printer, just 2 different paper trays. Has anyone ever done this? I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

    Yes.  I do this for HP Laser-jets with multiple trays.  You want to setup two separate printers with different names going to the same place.  I have one setup with Invoice forms defaulted to tray 2 and one setup as plain paper defaulted to tray 3.

    I created Named Printers back in v3.10 for a customer who wanted to print SOP picking tickets, packing slips and invoices to 3 different printers/trays.

    I worked with my brother in law at a company called Sequel Technology, which is why all the tables/windows/constants/dex.ini settings all start with ST_. Sequel Technology won the 1997 Great Plains Technical Innovation Award for Named Printers.

    Microsoft bought it for v5.50 and moved it into core for v6.00.

    It stores the printer AND its settings so can be used to print to different trays or any other setting in printer settings.
