    Default Can't print reports in landscape

    I trying to print a long header report but can't seem to get A5 to print in landscape mode. I've set my printer settings to landscape but A5 only preview in portrait mode. And sometimes it even defaults back to portrait when I cancel the preview. what am I doing wrong? .

    I print 90 % landscape all day, so I would verify that your Alpha report print settings & your physical printer settings are not conflicting. Short of that how about posting a sample stating O/S, printer model etc.

    Thanks for replying John,

    I descovered that preview will not display in landscape mode but when I preview in the printer's preview screen it does show that it will print in landscape. I would like to preview it in A5 before sending it to the printer to adjust columns widths so that all columns would print properly. What can I adjust in A5 to preview in landscape mode. I'm using Win XP Pro and my printer is a HP 1220c.

    My preview works just fine. Bear in mind you do have to use the horizontal scroll bar to see all, as the image is too large to fit the screen. You can also click on the screen (When preview is displayed) & A5 will reduce the size to fit. However its pretty small & hard to read.
