Is there any way of fitting more fields across the page?

Answer

Since Crystal Reports is page oriented, you can only place as much information horizontally as can fit on a page. The printer and the printer options determine the size of the page. Most standard printers can handle paper up to legal size which yields, at most, 14 inches.

Many people use Crystal to export information to Excel. They have no intention of actually printing to paper, but they are subject to the same limitations as if they were.

A good work-around is to install an HP Designjet 3500CP printer. When you select the 54 by 76 paper size and set it landscape, you get 74 inches of horizontal space.

In addition, you can squeeze more information into your report by using the smallest font you can stand.
