This post is part of a series of posts where I explain how to print to different trays in NAV.
- Print to different trays in NAV – Part 1
- Print to different trays in NAV – Part 2
- Print to different trays in NAV – Part 3
- Print to different trays in NAV – Part 4
In this third part, we’ll see how you can find what are available trays in your printer.
To do this, I will explain two solutions.
You can get available trays by executing this command line:
.\FindTrays.exe “MyPrinterName” > .\AvailableTrays.txt
How do you get your printer’s name? Simple, just go to your printer properties and you’ll find it under the general tab.
The second solution I suggest is based on NAV. The idea is to create a simple report that prints the tray number using:
- PAPERSOURCE function for NAV 2009 R2 Classic Client and older version,
- Properties PaperSourceFirstPage, PaperSourceDefaultPage and PaperSourceLastPage for version with Windows Client / RTC (i.e. NAV 2013 and later).
Sources and examples are available for download here. Enjoy!
In the fourth part, we’ll apply what we learned, and we’ll discuss some NAV limitations.
