Here are some examples of the usage of PRINT in the chapter I am working on currently:

"When using comparative percentages the second item must be explicitly
specified as a print item in the body of the SUM report."
"This chapter describes how to create summary reports that show numeric
information, such as the total values of orders, without needing to print
detailed information from each record."

I'd look for constructions that use "extract" when specifying what data the report is asked for, and "generate" for producing the report results online or for export or printing.
