Hi Kathy,

Yes, it's possible to setup as many printers in eBS as you need

and afterwards associate(set default printer) through profile option to every user in the system.

There is a slight problem with security. With standard functionality you can't restrict access.

This means that a end user in London for example can pick up a printer in Madrid
and print document there, sometimes this is useful unfortunately some times not, depends on the business case.

You can overcome this issue by one of the following options:     

  1. Adding a org_id column to FND_PRINTER table, create a policy procedure and force to be used implicitly
  2. Create a one batch printer and ask end users to print documents from their browser to local printers.

I hope this the answer to your question.
