Yep, this needs major work. Just be thankful your not on a Mac where "Print" and
"Page Setup" are always different dialogs. We don't even allow the user to get
to  Page Setup. If you want to print landscape, forget it. Also, better hope the
default page size in your printer driver is the size paper you have. Some
drivers allow you to get to Page Setup from the print dialog but many (including
mine) don't. It's horrible and there's a bug on that one.

For this situation, spilling off the page, we need "Scale To Page" vs. "Tile
Page" options which would allow somebody to deal with this.

dcone, what's the chance of fixing these problems? I mean, on the Mac, printing
is pretty useless.

Funny, I just noticed I got this bug cause it was assigned to Profile Mgr Back
End. Even though by accident, thanks for reminding me. It's one of my peeves.

reassigning to core owner. not a table specific bug, though table help might be 
required to fix it.  this seems to fall in the realm of printing and the 'right 
thing to do'.

4.x somehow determined in some cases that it needed to shrink the table to fit
the page.

Print scaling is now checked in and and can be used to print this. I was able to
print it at 95%
