A print style tells the printer how a printed output should look. A printer driver delivers commands that tell the printer how to output the specified print style.
The ability to print a report in a particular print style depends on the type of printer the report file is sent to.
For each print style that a particular type of printer can print, a printer driver specific to the printer type and the operating system is required.
Attention: You must assign both a print style, and a printer driver to print that style, to each printer type you wish to print reports from in that style.
