Redirecting prog output fr a printer to a text file

The user enters data to the program. At days' end, they would print to a pre-printed form. The problem is to redirect the output to a disk file which can then be sent via modem to a remote BBS. The disk file must be a text file or it is not usable. Consider this using SCO. I believe the output goes thru the spooler and the prog does not have a print to disk option.

Set up an ASCII printer.  For the device, put a file name.  This should automatically just append all jobs sent to this "printer" to the filename you want.

Let me know if you have trouble setting up the ASCII printer/file.

The answer is good but to earn the full point value you should  include how to set up the device.  I am a unix illiterate consulting with users, no admin or TS available.
