default printer is not selected when trying to run a report

default printer is not selected when trying to run a report


I am using Report Writer version 9.0.  There is a custom made report which when ran asks if I want to view or print the report.  When I click print the printer that is selected is not the computer's default printer.  It selects a Xerox Workcentre XD as the printer.  I was just wondering if there is some setting in Report Writer that I can change to get it to select the default printer.  (I wouldn't think that this setup is made in report writer, but who knows.)

Thanks for any help

RE: default printer is not selected when trying to run a report

It should print to the windows default printer.  Try opening the report in the report designer and re-save it on a computer that has the defalt printer selected.  See if that works.
