Lipi line printer

P: 232
I want to take print of my access report through lipi line printer through different computer which is not in our network. Kindly help me how to do it? Should I have to install that printer driver on my system or change settings of my system so that it can take page size (180 characters horizontally).I neither can attach this printer to my computer nor I can bring that computer on lan. I am just allowed to take my report in txt format through pen drive and print it. I am in very difficult situation kindly help as I have a little knowledge of hardware devices.
access 2007
Thanx in advance

I think you will need to explain in more detail what a lipi line printer is.

From what little you have told, I think you need to export the report to either .pdf or .txt and simply print that.

Its the printer that prints only characters not graphics.
I can print text file created through foxpro very well through it but not access report text can I give custom page size to access report without the printer attached?

From reasons I don't understand (this is a question for Microsoft team), as far as I know, you can't.
But you can install the printer in your system even you have not the physical device. After that you will be able to set up a custom page.

No. I'm not sure. But you waste only five minutes to install the printer and test my advice.

Why you wish to export as .txt ?
Try to export as .pdf
