I am considering writing a billing report using infomaker it has to
print to a pre-printed form using a dot matrix printer. What I am wondering
has anyone used infomaker against pre-printed forms? how well does it work.
I currnently am designing the report in crystal 6.0 but the problem is that
there are line items at the top and as you add more items it pushes the
things I have on the bottom down. Can anyone think of a way around this in
infomaker? Thanks.

Hi there,
we are doing some stuff on pre-printed forms, but without infomaker: im
is used only to get data, then we save it and do merge in word or any
other applications that are easier to deal with pre-printed forms.
Greetings,
Eva

It turns out I have gotten this to work completely in Crystal reports.
Thank you for the Comments. :)
