PaperSourceDefaultPage Property

Specifies the default paper source to use when printing the report.

Applies To



In the Report – Properties window, in the PaperSourceDefaultPage field, choose the paper source. The list contains 13 standard trays and 16 printer-specific trays. It is based on information in the fin.stx file.

If the printer that is used for this report does not support the specified paper source, then the printer uses the default tray that is specified by the printer driver.

If you do not specify a value for the PaperSourceDefaultPage property, then the printer uses the default printer tray that is defined for the operating system.

If you do not specify a value for the PaperSourceFirstPage property or the PaperSourceLastPage property, then the printer uses the tray that is specified in the PaperSourceDefaultPage property.

The printer specific trays that are contained in the list are intended for use with printers that have other paper sources than the standard ones that are listed in the property.

The settings in the Print and Page Setup dialog boxes override the value that is specified for the PaperSourceDefaultPage property.

You can use the GetPaperTrayForReport function in codeunit 1, Application Management, to set the paper tray from C/AL code. This gives you runtime control over paper tray selection for first, last, and default pages in a report.
