My company started using preprinted forms to print out delivery receipts with a dot matrix printer. We only need to print 2 pieces of data on this form at specific places, then move onto a new form and print the next 2 pieces of info. Ive tried searching and haven't found anything remotely related to this situation.

Essentially, we will have a spreadsheet with 2 columns with cells containing stock codes eg:
The number of rows will vary, one week may be 20 rows of info, the next may be 76 rows.
I need to be able to take the info in each row, and send it to the printer so that it prints in the right place of the form, and move onto the next row/page until all rows have been printed.
Currently, I have a spreadsheet with a bunch of empty rows, 2 rows where the info needs to be, then more empty rows followed by the next 2 items, empty rows etcetc...As you can imagine this could require some tedious reworking week after week as the number of forms to be printed changes each week.
There has to be a better way to do this! I havent got the experience of working with excel (or dot matrix printers)
