    Angry Printing and wrap text; a grump

    Sorry, but I just had to get this off my chest.

    I have files that include one column with notes in it. I have text wrapping activated for those cells.

    But when I print the file, either shrink to fit the page width or at 100%, the printed copy has a lot of the cells with some of the text hidden.

    BAH!

    Edit: I am using 2007

    YUP!! And indeed that is why I was grumping. I already knew the answer, but I was a little frustrated so I had to vent. I felt better after doing it.

    I suppose a database would be more useful, but the only thing I have is the rest of the Micro$oft suite here, and for my purposes, Access is a major PITA. Ah, for a good windows flat database without bells & whistles (an updated PCFile would be wonderful). And, since this computer is locked down for security purposes, I would not be able to install it.
