Dear Experts,

I have a pre printed form (8.5 * 11) with various fields like customer , Address, Invoice number printed on it.

I am reading the valued from my database.
Also I am reading the start position of each field in mm (1/10th of cm)
I am planning to use Graphics.Drawsring() to redirect to printer.

How do I go about printing them on form.  My problem the client can print this on different printers like lase/ink jet etc.

How can I program such that it prints at the same position on any printer.


Thanks in advance.

Dear thiyaguk,

Thanks for providing me the link
But in my case, I have te dimensions of the start position of the filds in millimeters.
Also the data of each filed is fixed character length.

How can I proceed with this. Appreciate your help.
