I believe that you want to use the blank report form as a background in the print preview window. When you print preview, it looks as if the data is inserted into the pre-printed form, but when it prints, only the data gets printed.

I don't believe that this is possible in VFP 6. I couldn't figure out a way to accomplish this in VFP 8 either. (I just loaded VFP 9 on my machine at home and haven't had a chance to get into it yet, but it may be possible with VFP 9.) About the only way I can think to do this is to create a mockup of the print preview window using custom form class and when the user clicks your custom PrintCmd button, you issue a "REPORT FORM MyReport TO PRINTER NOCONSOLE."
