Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The first thing to try (and so you probably have already) is to check that the CPI (Characters per inch) value is high enough. If your CPI value is the same as it would be for a 132-column page, raise the value and try printing again.

Regards,

    This is what has worked for me. Override the printer file (I assume you aren't using a custom one): PAGRTT = 90, CPI = 16.7, width=198. (I don't remember offhand the name of the width parameter.)

    If PAGRTT = 90, CPI = 16.7, width=198 doesn't work. (we use it but sometime the report just doesn't fit the page on 1 end). Check the printer to see if there is a fit to page setting under menu/printer settings. That might do it . Font is automatically adjusted so it may be to small.
