Attach multiple printers to SAP output type

I am able to attach only one printer to one output type. How can I attach multiple printers to an SAP output type, say Invoice output?

The only solution I currently have is to create a new output type (clone to Original output) and attach another printer. But I don't want to do it this way.

Is there a way to accomplish this with only one output type?

You can use "spooling" at the Operating System level. You define the printers (ports, shares, etc.) at the OS level and then enable spooling.

In NT/W2K, you define the printers, ports and shares. Then, in R/3 you create the output device and set it to make a direct call to the OS (access method "C"). The OS handles the spool requests. This is how you can print to many printers.
