Mac Works 3.0: Report Field Names Truncate When Printed

PSS ID Number: Q102079 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

MACINTOSH

====================================================================== 3.00 MACINTOSH kbprint

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 3.0

SYMPTOMS

When you print a Works version 3.0 Database file in report view with the fields sized to the length of the field names, the printout of the field names may be truncated. This occurs with any font and on any printer.

CAUSE

This occurs because the field names appear in plain type in report view, but they print as boldface type.

RESOLUTION

To avoid truncated field names when printed, do the following:

  1. From the Report menu, select the report.
  2. Increase field (column) width by placing the mouse pointer on the right boundary of the field name. It becomes a sizing tool. Hold the mouse button down and drag the field to the right. The field should be at least two spaces wider than the field name.

MORE INFORMATION

This problem does not occur in Microsoft Works 4.0 for the Macintosh.
