On this screen you can change the names of the printer definition and change the printer output port. If you leave a Print_Port field empty, it defaults to the LPT1 port. PRN is also equivalent to LPT1. As you look at this list note the printer number to the left of each printer name that you need to use as you will need it on the next screen. If you need to add another printer definition, move the cursor down to the bottom of the list and keep moving it down past the last entry. When you go past the bottom, you will be asked if you want to ADD MORE RECORDS?. Answer <Y> if you want to add a new printer definition. When you have finished viewing this screen, press <Ctrl-End> to proceed to the Customize Printing Destinations screen:
