er, `no two sections', that is.


1. Excel 97 - Screen column width vs. printed column width

I need to place a large amount of data on a printed page.  As a result, I
shrink the column widths on the screen to the minimum such that the is only
enough space for the characters in each cell without going to the ####.
However, when I view the page on print preview and when I print the page,
the column width becomes wider so that there is blank space in the cell
resulting in a wider horizontal separation between the data in each column.

Does anyone know why this occurs and can it be eliminated?
