We can set our preferred default printer in the Comet screen in File | Printer Setup

Is there a (easy) way to find which Windows printer has been setup ?

When I DSTAT('LPW') I get '#' as an answer... I need to know which real Windows printer is selected. Is there a way ?

Reason being that some reports are designed to go to the department printer with the 3-holes punch. I called it L3H. So reports using my standard print routine use L3H when prepunched paper is required.

The problem is when the default printer is CometPDF is chosen, it shouldn't go to L3H but stay in LPW.

This is happening more often now that people are working from home (Remote Desktop). I have many programs that requires USR.PaperType as DMTYPE.Prepunch.

I can't really tell if they want CometPDF.
