I have a MSSQL database that is getting large, it is about 150 tables as of today.  It is getting too big to look at on the monitors, I would like to print it out.  I can print it on a normal printer from the database diagram editor in MSSQL, but it comes out on about 60 pages or so.  I called Kinkos about a plotter, and the guy told me I need to bring it to him in either .jpg, .gif, or in Acrobat Reader (preferred).  How can I export this file to keep its normal size?  In the past I have had to do a print screen - this would not turn out well on a plotter, unfortunately.

Thanks for the help,

Brooks
