    Successmaker reports

    Can anyone help me with Successmaker reporting. Everytime I run them, they insist on my printer using page not A4 and there seems to be no way of changing it. Also is there anyway of changing which printer they go to rather than having to change the default printer before logging in again :?

    I use a script which will map the successmaker directory, map the successmaker printer manager printer as default, and then run SuccessMaker. Once SuccessMaker is closed the printer and sme dir are unmapped.

    Did that solve the problem of it asking for letter size paper rather than A4?

    Code:
    SME.bat
    
    rem @echo off
    c:
    cd c:\windows\system32
    NET USE m: \\WIN2KSRV\sme /persistent:no
    START \\MyServer\SMlas
    m:
    cd ResultsManager\SuccessMaker\bin
    LOGIN.EXE C:\ResultsManager\SuccessMaker\Launch.txt
    WScript removeprinter.vbs
    c:
    cd c:\windows\system32
    NET USE m: /DELETE
    Code:
    removeprinter.vbs
    
    Option Explicit
    DIM WSHNetwork, SMLas
    Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
    
    SMLas="\\MyServer\SMLas"
    
    WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection SMLas, true, true

    Completely uncommented because I'm lazy and didn't see the point on such a short script. Apparently there are ways to remove a printer in a bat script but calling a vbs works just as well.
