The main idea: use QuickReport and OnNeedData event

Here is example

// ----------------
unit Main;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, Grids;

type
  TTest = class(TForm)
    StringGrid: TStringGrid;
    TestFillBtn: TButton;
    TestPrintBtn: TButton;
    procedure TestFillBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
    procedure TestPrintBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Test: TTest;

implementation

uses PrnFrm;

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TTest.TestFillBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
var I, J: Integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to StringGrid.RowCount-1 do
    for J := 0 to StringGrid.ColCount-1 do
      StringGrid.Cells[J,I] := Format('Test %d %d', [I, J]); // fill StringGrid with test value
end;

procedure TTest.TestPrintBtnClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  PrintForm.StringGrid := StringGrid;
  PrintForm.QuickRep.Preview;  // preview report
end;

end.
// ------- end of Main Unit -----

object Test: TTest
  Left = 206
  Top = 139
  Width = 367
  Height = 330
  Caption = 'Test'
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -11
  Font.Name = 'MS Sans Serif'
  Font.Style = []
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object StringGrid: TStringGrid
    Left = 8
    Top = 8
    Width = 225
    Height = 281
    ColCount = 3
    FixedCols = 0
    RowCount = 100
    FixedRows = 0
    TabOrder = 0
  end
  object TestFillBtn: TButton
    Left = 256
    Top = 8
    Width = 75
    Height = 25
    Caption = 'Test Fill'
    TabOrder = 1
    OnClick = TestFillBtnClick
  end
  object TestPrintBtn: TButton
    Left = 256
    Top = 56
    Width = 75
    Height = 25
    Caption = 'Test Print'
    TabOrder = 2
    OnClick = TestPrintBtnClick
  end
end

// ---- end of Test Form (Main program form)

    FCurrentRow: Integer;
  public
    { Public declarations }
    property StringGrid: TStringGrid read FStringGrid write FStringGrid;
  end;
