How do I Print on a pre formatted sheet of paper?

Is it possible to print to an exact part of a piece of paper?

I would like to write a program to fill out several different pre-printed forms. is there an easy way to program coordinates in for where the program should print what?

I am using Visual Basic 2005.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!`

Hi OsirisJa

Here is a very simplistic example. Before you run it make sure you have a default printer hooked up.
Create a form and place a Button and a PrintDocument on it. Run it and push Button1.

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    End Sub

    Private Sub PrintDocument1_PrintPage(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs) Handles PrintDocument1.PrintPage
        e.Graphics.DrawString("Some Text", New Font("Arial", 10, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Pixel), Brushes.Black, 250, 300)
    End Sub

This will print the text "Some Text" 2.5" to the right and 3.0" down from the top left margin corner.
