Overview: Printing Table Data

When Monarch Classic prints table data, it prints as many fields as will fit across the page. If all of the fields will not print on a page, the remaining fields are wrapped to the next page. The amount of information that will fit on each page is determined by several factors:

  • Font size: Font size has a dramatic effect on the amount of data that fits on each page. Typically, the database table is usually much wider than the report. To fit the entire width of the table on the page, you may need to select a smaller font size, such as 6 or 7 points. See Selecting a font.

  • Margins: The margins affect how close text is allowed to print to the edge of the page. You can use the margin settings to make small adjustments to the amount of text that will fit on each page. See Setting margins and print options.

  • Orientation: The paper orientation setting specifies the direction that text will print. For wide tables, set the paper orientation to Landscape. See Selecting paper size and orientation.

As you experiment with these settings, you can use the Print Preview command to observe the effects. See Previewing a print operation.

Note: If you don't need to print all of the fields in the table, you can hide the unnecessary fields via the Field List dialog. Hidden fields won't be printed.
