    Default Printing from a Web Page

    Everyone knows that printing a web page directly usually cuts off half of the information, so I am trying to create a web page based on the results of a search, dedicated entirely to printing. I currently have two small grids displayed on the page, but when displayed, they have a lot of wasted space between them, and at the top of the page.

    What I want to know is if anybody knows how I can get the two grids to display close to each other. I've tried taking the blocks marked "Data" and placing them both in a table with one on top of the other, but they always display the same way.

    Here's the temporary page to show what I'm talking about:

    http://192.168.1.3/PRINT.a5w

    If anyone has any ideas I'm all ears ..............

    Richard, what I would recomend is using a report to produce the printable data for your application. Because reports can be generated as PDF files and displayed in the users' web browsers, you have precise control over the exact layout and formatting - something that simply is not possible with HTML.
