IS-PS 4.6C-Goods Receipt printer assignment


I am trying to change the designated printer that is assigned for printing our Goods Receipts. We are on 4.6C. I have looked at all of the IMG configuration tools and have not found the one that has the currently assigned printer shown. This includes IMG->Materials Management->Output Determination->Printer Determination and the current printer is not listed.

Are there more than one way to set the default printer for the GR print function when using transaction MIGO? Where or how is the printer defined?

Thanks in advance,

Mark Shirkey

    Dear Mark,

    Pls check following points;

    (a) Check printer determination parameters for printer in IMG

    (b) Check field NAST-MANUE

    (c) Explore SAP Note 426554 & 522591

    Hope this info will be useful.

      Hi Muralidhara,

      My appologies for not getting back to you sooner. A new printer has been installed and named as the old printer, so the need to make the change in SAP has gone.

      Thank you for your response to my question. The information was useful in verifing my previous checks into the configuration of the Output Determination for Goods Receipts.

      I would still be interested in finding how to change it if it ever comes up again. Please see below for details on what I found for configuration settings in our system.

      a) The only printer designated in the IMG for the printer was LP01 under the General Settings link of Materials Management->Inventory Management and Physical Inventory->Print Control, which is apparently a default device that SAP created. None of the Printer Determination settings have been maintained. As the named device in General Settings does not exist in our system, it escapes me as to how the transaction MIGO gets the defaulted device that we want to change.

      b) NAST-MANUE contains the printer name that I would like to change. How is this field filled in when processing the transaction? If it is in the General Settings settings, then why does it not show the LP01 printer as the default?

      c) I went through both notes and found that there was not a setting made in Printer Determination that has the current defaulted printer named. The configuration has not been maintained.

      If you have any other information that can point me in the right direction, I would be very apprciative of hearing about it.

      Thank you again,
