Printing Many Columns

As computer end-users, we're often confronted with which software tool is
best for a certain task.

I'm at that juncture again.

I have a heading for each column from A - J and thought Calc or Excel would
handle that.

But, when I print that file in Calc or Excel it doesn't print all the
columns.

It was then suggested I try Word Tables (Writer equivalent?) but then I
read Word Tables would be no better an accommodator.

Would Libre Writer be a better choice?

I'm not expert using Libre Writer (Tables?)

Thank you.

Both LO Calc and MSO Excel will do this task for you ...
In LO Calc the navigation is ...
Format -> Page, select the "Sheet" tab, and at the bottom use "Scaling
Factor" to set a reduction percentage.
... you may have to experiment to determine the percentage required for
the particular sheet.
Also you may want to change the orientation of the page (Portrait -
Landscape) ...
Format -> Page, select the "Page" tab ... the radio buttons for Portrait
and Landscape are a little less than 1/2 the way down
Hope that helps
Regards
Fred James

Re: Printing Many Columns

In reply to this post by charles meyer
Charles,

Calc or Excel will handle that.

If all columns are not printed there are a number of possible reasons. Two
I can think of:

* the print range does not include all columns
* the print range does include all columns BUT is not scaled to fit all
columns on a single sheet AND additional sheets that would show the
additional columns are not included in the "pages to print".

If the above does not trigger an idea that helps you resolve the problem
would you provide some more specific information about the process you
follow to print the sheet and the output that is produced?

Thank you.
