Change the LOCATION field of all printers on a print server.

I have a Server 2008 printer server with about 100 printers on it.  I need to change the location field on all printers to be the same thing.  

Can I powershell this?

If yes, can you let me know how?  I hate to change them all manually.

Thanks

Cliff

I know you can add this info when you create a printer but not sure if you change it once it is created. See this link https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh918353%28v=wps.630%29.aspx; however I did find another link where the creator says he uses this script to update his existing printers. Hope that helps https://powershellbitsandbytes.wordpress.com/2010/03/02/powershell-and-printer-servers/
