>VFP – Report Printing on Dot Matrix Printer

>For DOT-MATRIX reporting, I use the normal reports, but with SET REPORTBEHAVIOR 80
And use only the fontas native to the printer, for example: “DRAFT”, “SERIF”. These fonts always appear with a small printer icon on the left.

Don’t forget to set up the default printer in your main report settings, at least during the time you are designing. If you want, after you create your report, you can even clean the Printer-Environment settings.

Using these native fonts is the better option for you.
1 – They will print super fast (because they are native)
2 – Allow you to use some other fonts and sizes, Big and compressed fonts are allowed (in ASCII just one size)
3 – Allow you to determine exactly the position of each field or label

(Sans Serif 10cpi,Sans Serif 12cpi,Sans Serif 5cpi,Sans Serif 6cpi)
