[SOLVED] Automatically fit PDF report on page?

Is there a way to set a report to be exported to a single page in PDF? That is, if the report is too wide to fit on a normal A4 page, I'd like it to be automatically zoomed out so that the whole report becomes small enough to git in a single page.

I don't know of any feature to automatically fit a pdf report on one page. Use LANDSCAPE orientation, WRAP on your columns, and set the values of LEFTGAP and RIGHTGAP. But if you have like 20 columns to display its going to be hard to fit the report in one page.

Also you can reduce the size of the font to gain more space.
TYPE=REPORT,
SIZE=9,$

And adjust your column headings

You might want to look into using
  
PAGESIZE={size}


The default is "LETTER", but there are a whole list of other options. One of my first clients INSISTED on over 25 columns on one report. After I sent it as font size 2 on a size=d, he finally got the message when he tried to print it.

Unless the user notices and changes it, the pdf reader print functionality will automatically shrink the output to fit on 8 1/2 x 11.

Totally unreadable, but all the columns were there :-)

Thanks to all for your reply. I came to the same conclusions and my current solution is the same as Robert's suggestion.

We have in the past created a loop to produce the report, then test the &FOCERRNUM, if the report panelled, then reloop and change the page size/orientation.

You can go to extrememly large page sizes.

I Wish I could learn how to fit a compound pdf report.

I can´t handle that OVERFLOW-POSITION and OVERFLOW-DIMENSION.
