Suzanne reckon is rather cumbersome that way.  You can adjust the column width by Right Clicking on the double lined spacer between labels.

To get maximum control of your reports, I'd suggest Printing/Exporting to a Tab-limited csv file, which you can then open and manipulate before printing.  Bit cumbersome, but you total control.

Understand your frustration.  Have you tried exporting the report and then manipulating it in Excel, as I suggested?

Hi Dave
I have been exporting my reports to Excel, But I find that they do not save and when I try to reopen them I can't.  I have a lot of Reports to Print out for my Accountant, I like the way The Reports Print out in Reckon That is why I purchased it.

Sorry, Suzanne, but what do you mean "they do not save"?  The "Print to"/"Export to [Excel compatible]"/Export allows you to save the Report as a txt file wherever you want. You can then open it in Excel which converts it to csv format; that can then be saved in xls or xlsx format.  Apologies if I've covered obvious stuff, but can't see why it doesn't work for you.

Hi Dave 
Thank you for prompting me to have another look
I was saving as txt file, i could work on it and I did save it but when I went back to have a look at it I got an error message. I thought about what you were saying and decided to save  it as a Open spread sheet that did work, looks good now
Thank you

Hi Suzanne

If you take a transaction report as an example I find sometimes if you delete columns that are not needed helps.  Top right of report "customise" and un tick NUM TAG & CLR (if you don't need these details).

I have found some versions are harder than others to customise the width but you are supposed to be able to drag the double lines in the header column to the right and left.  What version are you running?  Try starting with the AMOUNT column to the left first and then work your way with the other columns.

Hope one of these help a little?

Hi Robyn
I have been dragging the double lines to the Right but the Double lines jump to the left I have no Control I was trying to close the coloums I did not Need, I have even tried moving the First coloum to the left the screen just jumps.  I have been using Reckon Software for  over 10 years now.
I up date the software every year this has happened before But I can't remember how to solve it
Technical Support worked through it with me before. Technical Support tried to access my Computer
Remotely but my Norton Security was blocking them, I have made the software except Reckon and temporary turned it off, but they still could not get access. They told me they would ring me back that was 3 Days ago. I have even tried reinstalling the Software that made no Difference.

Hi Robyn
I have tried that.  when I try to expand what I do want showing like the Memo so the Account can read it.  When I try to move the II to adjust the area  the II just shuts down the area and shortens the page
