It is highly recommended that you NOT use Dot-Matrix printers for reports because the true type fonts will cause the printer to print very slowly. Using a Dot-Matrix for entry cards and labels should print quickly as there are specific choices for dot-matrix printers. If you are using a Dot-Matrix printer to print Entry cards, please set up that printer as your default printer in Windows.   To do this, click on the Windows Start button, then Settings then Printers.  Now double click on the Dot-Matrix printer and then click on the Printer pull-down and click on Set Default.


If you have problems printing on the Dot-Matrix printer, please go to your printer vendor's web site and download the latest printer driver.  Please note that Windows NT does not have drivers for many of the older Dot-Matrix printers.
