  • This may help concerning placement:
    If you are using a ReportViewer, you can set the margins before printing using the dialogs available from the toolbar(I can't say anything more specific unless I know if this is a WinForm or a WebForm. Otherwise, you can use a LocalReport.Render method to get an image which can be sent to a printer. You can set the margins in the device info of the render method. See GetReportViewer.com for a printing example.

    As far as dot matrix printers are concerned, I have no idea and you should really find another resource. Perhaps the printer manufacturer? Sorry I can not be of more help.
