Draft printing or DOS way of printing

Can any help me?
I have been asked to provide the same report printing speed
(especially for audit trail which consists of many hundred of pages)
which DOS based program can do using dot-matrix printer.

I have tried using generic printer. However, it doesn't work. The
print head will just become crazy moving left and right.

I would be glad if someone can help me to use QuickReport 1.1a in text
mode so that I can still have the productivity of using visual report
designer.

TIA
