Portfolio not printing correctly

  • Updated 1 week ago
Whwn I use 'Print Portfolio' in Personal Plus in portrait mode I only get the first 3 columns transferred to the first page. This uses about 30% on the width of the page. My report then takes up to 4 pages with only 30% on each page. I have no problems with the printer printing any other reports, only Reckon. How can I get more columns. I do not  believe it  is the Printer.

Lex, easiest work around is to Export to a tab-delimited Excel file, then open in Excel and format as you want.

I think Diver Dave is being a little too polite.
This is an ongoing problem, that has been known and unaddressed for a long time.
So the Excel workaround is the easiest solution to an unnecessary problem.

Thank you both, I am sorry I didn't think of that. One would have thought that a package as popular as Reckon would be able to print a simple report.

Diver Dave, thanks for the suggestion. Can you tell me please how to get a tab delimited Portfolio file out of Reckon. I have found suggestions from the Reckon Community but they don't work for me.

When you are in the portfolio screen, if you go to / file/ print portfolio / export to / tab delimited.
Hope that works.
If not contact me directly on davidm@chastain.com.au and I will walk you through.

Lex, as David says, it's part of the print screen.  After saving the csv file, Import into Excel then after editing you can save it as an xls or xlsx file.
