Upon start up, I am instructed to create a PRINTER environment variable...
 
I am supposed to create an environment variable with the PRINTER variable, which should resolve to the word sales. Would the command be like this?: env PRINTER - NAME=SALES (is this the command to create that variable with resolving the word sales to it?)

Code:

PRINTER="sales"

would normally mean within a script. So dont forget to export the PRINTER variable.

PRINTER="sales"
export $PRINTER

OK
