Printer can not print large html table having large no of columns, some data is not getting printed

HI


I am having a  page in which I am showing large data  as an HTML table
That table has almost 13 to 14 columns, so while printing,
 that page spans  to more than one page.
All data can not fit into one page and  remaining data is lost
and is not getting printed.
Is there any silution to make this remaining data printed on another page or  to get all this data get printed...
THis is very urgent requirement...


Can you please help me as soon as possible


Thanks  in anticipation

you should identify your table to style sheet first.

@media print { .MyTBODY {zoom:0.5;} } assumes you have <TABLE CLASS=MyTBODY ... declaration.

style above would force IE to shrink table with CLASS=MyTBODY when printing, so it might be printed just fine on single page...

Try, for example, to print-preview HTML below:

<style>
 @media print { .MyTBODY {zoom:0.5;} }
</style>

<table class=MyTBODY border=1>
<tr>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>last</td>
</tr>
</table>

<table border=1>
<tr>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>tooooo_wide</td>
 <td>last</td>
</tr>
</table>

Printing is handled by the browser based on user printer and page settings.  Javascript cannot change this, since it is a local hard drive issue, and Javascript, via web pages, has no access to those settings.

The best you can do is break your table into two separate columns, or tell the user to set his printer to landscape mode and hope it will fit.  Whatever you can set on your own computer to get the columns to print, the user will be able to do the same, so use that as a guide.
