Re: Printing

I have to say I noticed from the screenshots, there were more lines of information on the non Excel version, so probably the Font in Excel is larger and thus the row heights larger to compensate.

This will all compound to make many more pages than the non Excel version

Sorry for the omission of the detail I saved the file in. It was CSV I subsequently saved it as excel file with the same result.

I have just tested the PDF version and it, as you say, similar the FH internal version.

Saving on CSV I adjust the spreadsheet settings and it doesn't give the same result as FH internal version. I have checked all settings there was nothing I could do to make it like FH or PDF

In future I will think twice about saving things as CSV

I agree with Helen. It would have been much simpler to use the FHUG Forum.

You omitted an important detail ~ what type of file did you save to: PDF, CSV, Text?

Depending on the application program that handles those file types the printout can vary dramatically.

When I tried PDF, the saved file was virtually identical to the FH internal printed version with the same numbered pages, headings, etc.

Save to a CSV spreadsheet file and the printout format will depend on the spreadsheet program’s settings, page orientation, etc.

Save to a Text file which is plain text with no formatting and you lose tidy columns and page numbering.

I’m not sure what else you could have expected with those file types.
