I cannot display FrontEnd printer/Windows printer when I print reports. Why do some users have the option to choose the FrontEnd printer, while others do not?
The ability to choose any local printer when using FrontEnd printing was introduced in R/3 4.6. In other releases you couldn't choose the printer. Therefore, SAP would use your default printer. You did not mention what R/3 release you are working on and also what SAPGUI (SAP FrontEnd) your users have. If this is R/3 4.6x and SAPGUI 4.6D or above, I would check also the user's permissions. If could be that their permissions deny access to the %LOC printer device in authorization object S_SPO_DEV.
