Your reports are sometimes a reflection of what was available when your application was developed. If you have an older application, all your reports might be developed to print on Dot Matrix printers since that was all that was available at the time. You might have preprinted invoices on continuous paper that cost extra for printing and need to be loaded and unloaded between print jobs. Newer applications or reports were probably moved to a laser printer as they became available.
