Intercept Data Sent to Print and Insert into Database

A legacy application (I don't have the source code for the
application) transmits reports to a printer. One of the
reports that are sent to the printer needs to be inserted
into a database. With VB.NET can I intercept items that
are sent to the printer? Can I read what is being sent to
the buffer with VB.NET and save to a file? Please let me
know if this is possible with VB.NET. Should I be using a
memorystream and window services? Please let know if you
have any ideas. I could use all the help that I can get.
