For general help, enter ? in the command field.
For help with a specific printer, enter ? in the action field of the targeted printer to display all actions for that specific printer. A typical Printer Configuration display follows.
Spool (QA44 ) Printer Configuration Ln 1 - 1 / 1 Sub QA44 Nje RN RG RU Col 1 to 106 of 106 Command ===> * Action Dest DEFNODE Group Alias VPS Location TCP/IP host address TCP/IP HP6E10 LPR 3 AHP6E10 VHP6E10 Virum 999.999 raw Valid actions: A - Add printer definition D - Delete printer definition M - Modify printer definition blank - extended modify ? - show valid actions Command ===>
Action Field
You can use any of the following commands in the Action field:
  • PRTADD or A    -   Add printer node definition
  • PRTDEL or D    -   Delete printer node definition
  • PRTMOD or M  -   Modify printer node definition
  • blank/none        -   Extended display
  • ?                       -   Show valid actions
Using Filtering Criteria
You can use filtering to limit the number of printers selected for display.
The Filtering Criteria is specified in the heading of the panel and/or in the column heading of the printers. For more information about the filtering criteria in the heading of the panel, see Filtering Criteria in Menus, Panels Filtering, and Commands.
The table that follows describes the filtering criteria in the column heading of the printer display. You can set criteria by entering a command in the input field. An asterisk "*" means that no value is currently assigned. The filter value may optionally contain asterisks, which indicates any character is a match in that position. If a printer attribute can be specified in mixed case, the filter is a mixed case filter and the exact match is required.
The Sort column indicates whether sorting of columns according to the printer attribute is possible. Only one column can be sorted at a time. The sort is invoked by placing the cursor on the column name and pressing Enter. The initial sort order is ascending. Reselecting the sort column causes the sort order to be reversed.
By default, Numeric filters display files that have attributes greater than or equal to the value used as a filter. For a numeric value less than a filter value, specify '<' before the filter value, for example, files with priority values '<9'. If a 'less than' filter is used in a numeric filter, the maximum number allowed will not always be the highest possible value for the field. For example, the highest number that can be placed in the Port filter is 32767. The highest 'less than' filter for Port is <9999.
To remove all filters and sort specifications, enter RESET in the Command input field.
