Allowing users to choose printer for Smart Form output

Mark Smithson explains how to allow users to choose a printer for Smart Form output.

How can we allow users to choose which network printer to send Smart Form output to from an ABAP report program?
Add a parameter to the selection-screen based on type NAST-LDEST (Printer ID). If you do this correctly, it should appear as a drop-down box with all defined printers in your system.

In your code, pass this parameter value into NAST-LDEST itself and into CONTROL_PARAM-DEVICE (or whatever variant thereof you are using to call the form). Make sure this value transfer takes place before you call the Smart Form itself.
