I wud like to ask mlmcc for some information.
Dear mlmcc,
now i print it using the plain print command of VB printer object, adjusting the spaces by trial and error. coz billing application customer needs faster bill printing as customer cannot wait for the bill to be printed. with crystal reports it takes longer time although i set the fonts as "Draft" for faster printing, where as print command of printer object prints immediatly after enddoc command. do u have any other way out? same is the case with vb data reports also. can u suggest me anything.

I feel, let us all ask Crystal to do a patch for  this i.e increasing printing speed for Dot Matrix Printers as the demand is high,
what do u say mlmcc?
