Or you can try something like this - it will print the selected row (needs some formatting though... ;)

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
PrintFile : TextFile;
tempStr, OldFont : String;
i:Integer;
begin
  Printer.PrinterIndex := -1;
  OldFont := Printer.Canvas.Font.Name;
  Printer.Canvas.Font.Name := 'Courier New';
  AssignPrn(PrintFile);
  try
     Rewrite(PrintFile);
     Writeln(PrintFile, ' ');
     tempStr:=' ';
     for i:=0 to dbgrid1.DataSource.DataSet.FieldCount-1 do begin
       tempStr:=tempStr+dbgrid1.DataSource.DataSet.Fields[i].Text;
       tempStr:=tempStr+' ';
     end;
     Writeln(PrintFile, tempStr);
  finally
    CloseFile(PrintFile);
    Printer.Canvas.Font.Name := OldFont;
  end;
end;
