    ​I created a custom report that looks great with the CRM; however, when I go to save or print the report I can not get the report to fit within one page width no matter what size of page I use. Am I missing a step? My report is three pages within the CRM and 10 every time I try to save or print due to this issue.

    Hi Jennifer,
    You cannot print a report directly, so I assume you download the report as PDF and the PDF creates extra pages depending on the size of the table. Try to download as Word or Excel and see how that looks.
    If you created the report in Visual Studio or as SQLreport you should be able to optimize the layout there.

    Check your Report Margins.  Sometimes I go as small as 0.2 In to the Right and to the left.

    Margins are in ​Report Properties.  To get there either choose the Report Menu Item at the Top or Right-Click outside of the Report.

    When you export the report, use the "MHTML (web archive) option. When the file is done downloading, open it (mine opens in Chrome) - use the Chrome print button and mine gives me a print preview and prints correctly without zooming or anything with margins.
