I want to print and printpreview using MFC SDI engine.  The input file is kind of an excel (spreadsheet) report....with columns and rows....I want my print engine to check for the horizontal overflow of page and to split page at the proper location so that the rest of the document is placed on the next page.  Also, at the same time the document (which is spreadsheet report type) contains embeded bitmaps....i want my engine to take care of boundaries (margins)...the bitmap should not be split on two pages....it should be placed on one page.....
In nutshell my print engine should handle:
1. Horizontal overflow of pages.
2. Vertical overflow of pages.
3. Take care the embeded bitmaps.

thanks in advance for reply..it will be quite helpful if someone can give a generic outline of the code....

you should take care while printing, you have find the number of pages and check for horizontal over flows.

You can calculate the size of your table and the bitmap position in CView::OnBeginPrinting().
This function is called just after the print dialog. So here you know the selected page size to be printed and the Printer Device context.

CMyView::OnBeginPrinting(CDC *pDC, CPrintinfo* pInfo)
{
    //Find the number of pages and assign it to the CPrintInfo structure.
     pInfo->m_nPages = FindNumberOfPages(pDC);
}

Find each row size and column size.
You know the printable rectangle area from pInfo->m_rectDraw.
From the above two u get no. of pages.
And also check the position of the bitmap, and check whether it is coming on a single page.

So, after finding the number of pages, The OnPrint function is called for each page.
You can get the current page number in CPrintInfo member m_nCurPage, and draw according to the page number.

Let me know if this helps you.
