I've been tasked with printing a government report that is 512 characters wide.  

Based on searches here and on google it appeared that the only way to accomplish this was a custom paper size of 8.5 by 35 or 36.  With a font size of 6 (I could extend this to 8).  

I've managed to complete the report using the custom paper size and it displays properly and will export to PDF, but I need this is text format to properly upload to the governmental agency that needs the report.

I've been unable to get anything but a small subreport to pull any visable data in the text file.  

It appears for that the 512 characters are over 25.625 of the report resulting in a characters per inch of about 20.  I've been trying with 20 on char's per inch and 0 on pagenate and I'm getting nothing.  

Any help/comments/ideas would be appreciated, from what I've been able to figure out normal dpi for text files is 10, I'm not sure if that would cause the problem.  

Thx in advance
