Q: How Do I Set the Default SAP Output Device?


The default SAP output device is the print queue to which your SAP documents will print unless otherwise specified.

To set your default SAP output device, using SAPgui:

  • Follow the menu path System > User Profile > Own Data.
  • Select the Defaults tab.
  • In the Spool Control section, locate the Output Device field, and enter your preferred SAP print queue.
    NOTE: To print to the default printer for the local machine, enter %WIN (for Windows machines) or %FE1 (for Macintosh machines).
  • Click on the Save icon to save your changes (looks like a floppy disk).

Note: You can always choose a different output device on a document-by-document basis.
