Printing Question

I have to write a report which 2 pages: the first one is the customer record, and the second one is a table with all the activities of the customer in the last month(kind of a grid table). I have no problems with the first page, but when I tried to deal with second page, i could figure out how can I align and limit the size of the fields so all the rows for a specific colimn will start on the same X. I tried to use the currentX/Currenty but it didn't work.
Can someone help me, please

Umm, as you print, don't advance the cursor:

Printer.print "col1";
printer.currentx = ... set to column two
printer.print "col2";

The ; at the end of the line will prevent the print cursor from advancing.

You can also force the issue:

TempY = Printer.CurrentY
Printer.Print "Col1"
Printer.CurrentY = TempY
Printer.CurrentX = Col2X
Printer.Print "Col2"

Same technique lets you right align. Say you had to print something at 5" that would
place you at 7220 twips in from the left.

txt = "Text to print Right"
Printer.CurrentX = 7220 - text.width(txt)
Printer.Print Txt

etc.

Remember text prints DOWN and to RIGHT of CurrentX/CurrentY and that there are 1440 twips in one inch. (1 inch = 6 Picas = 72 Points = 1440 Twips)
