You can include any of the following characters as part of the value you specify for DeviceName:

Character How this value is used
* Replaced by "A", "B", "C", and so on for each new session. If the entire alphabet is used, the generated device names continue with "AA", "AB", "AC", and so on.
% Replaced by "P" for printer sessions and "S" for display sessions.
= Replaced by "1", "2", "3", and so on.
&COMPN Replaced by the local workstation name. If the generated name exceeds 10 characters, the excess characters are trimmed from the left (unless + is also used). This character cannot be used with ";ampUSERN".
&USERN Replaced by the local user name, left-trimmed if the generated name exceeds 10 characters. If the generated name exceeds 10 characters, the excess characters are trimmed from the left (unless + is also used). This character cannot be used with ";ampCOMPN".
+ Used with ";ampUSERN" or ";ampCOMPN" to specify trimming from the right instead of from the left. This can be placed anywhere in the string.

You can use only one string literal in combination with these characters. If you use separated strings, the second string is dropped.
