Can a report sent to a laser printer be captured and reformated to a dot matrix?

We have a software program which uses MS SQL2005 and we love it. However, we have need of a particular report (a one page basic report). Currently we can run a canned report from the program and it has all the data we need. However, we need to have the data go to different spots on an old three part NCR type form so instead of printing what we need right to the laser printer, we have to take our nice clean laser printed report and hand enter all the same data on the stupid old form. I wonder if there is some process where we can capture the data and then send it down an old printer cable to a dot matrix printer which could print on the 3 part paper. Yes, we have asked our software vendor and no, they won't do this.
