Hi,

Compare bitmap report, UNIX/LINUX Operating system Support Character mode report. So better to convert to character mode before putting in UNIX/LINUX server.

More information...

Bitmap reports can be printed on Lazer Jets/ Ink Jets
Character reports can be printed on Dot Matrix PRinters.

Character mode reports can be compressed also so that the characters appear more closely.

Bitmaps are easier to format.
Character modes are more tough to format.

Bitmaps just require the default setting for desformat property.
Character modes require special printer driver setting for desformat property.

Thanks
