You may wish to use printer control codes to exploit the native features of your printer when printing reports. To print control characters to the printer prefix the control code, in hexadecimal, with the caret symbol '^'. For example, to send 0F hex to the printer use:


Depending on the printer driver this may or may not work as the driver will decide whether to pass the control character to the printer or just ignore it.


To ensure that control code are sent to the printer add a Generic (Text only) printer device to your Windows installation using the printers applet in Windows control panel. The generic printer device will pass on all control codes to the printer.
