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.
