I'am a new user on this site and really hoping for your help. I'm presently having a problem in producing a report that will use an Epson (FX1170) Dot Matrix printer.
I tried Crystal report and Quick report but It did not work, the crystal report produce a report preview that looks good in Windows but when I actually send it to printer it is somehow miss aligned, and it is very slow, even when if I used a draft font. I read some FAQ here and learned that the best way is to print a report in text file format using Dos command. My problem now is how to execute dos command from a delphi application. I did tried Shellexecute, it works but it first print the Filename of the text file and skip several lines before it prints the actual content. Also when it prints, it seems that I cannot use the printer's native font and the condensed mode dont work.
I really need to solve this, please help me.
Thank you very much.
