Then you'd have to render it. Prob the easiest way would be to load it into a TWebBrowser & let IE print it for you, something like this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   vaIn, vaOut: OleVariant;
   ms : TMemoryStream;
begin
     ms := TMemoryStream.create;
     memo1.Lines.saveToStream(ms);
     WebBrowser1.Document as IPersistStreamInit).Load(TStreamAdapter.Create(AStream);
     ms.free;
     while webBrowser1.busy do
           application.processMessages;
     WebBrowser.ControlInterface.ExecWB(OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER, vaIn, vaOut);
end;

I don't think you can print from a Memo component.

have you tried putting the information into a RichEdit component and printing?

Richedit1.Print(string);

I belive that it's declared in activeX.pas so you'll need to add activeX to your uses clause.
