PaperSourceFirstPage Property

Specifies which paper source to use when printing page one of the report.

In the Report – Properties window, in the PaperSourceFirstPage field, choose the paper source. The list contains 13 standard trays and 16 printer-specific trays. It is based on information in the fin.stx file.

If the printer that is used for this report does not support the specified paper source, then the printer uses the default tray that is specified by the printer driver.

If you do not specify a value for the PaperSourceFirstPage property, then the printer uses the tray that is specified in the PaperSourceDefaultPage Property.

If you do not specify a value for either the PaperSourceFirstPage property or the PaperSourceDefaultPage Property, then the printer uses the default printer tray that is defined for the operating system.

The printer specific trays that are contained in the list are intended for use with printers that have other paper sources than the standard ones that are listed in the property.

The settings in the Print and Page Setup dialog boxes override the value that is specified for the PaperSourceFirstPage property.

You can use the GetPaperTrayForReport function in codeunit 1, Application Management, to set the paper tray from C/AL code. This gives you runtime control over paper tray selection for first, last, and default pages in a report.
