Microsoft, Outlook, Printing Large HTML tables
Posted on 2007-11-29
Hi, I am developing a small program that sends of periodic emails to users. These alerts contain HTML tables of various sizes (depending on the alert). Very wides ones are wider than a page, even landscape. When I print these emails the tables are being cut off. They are not even being printed on two pages - anything farther than the pages boundry is just being lost.
My primary concern is for Outlook users, as most people getting them will be using it, but I also tried printing sending one of these messages to my gmail account, and printing it from within Firefox and the same thing happened.
Can anyone suggest a solution? I've thought about attaching an excel file with the grid instead of writing an HTML table in the body, but that has it's own drawbacks. Ideally, we'd like people to be able to get the email, and hit "print".
