If portions of the header or footer are not appearing on the printed statement, you may need to adjust the page margins and/or the Header/Footer margins in the File > Properties dialog.

Example: If the Top margin is 1.00 inch and the Header margin is .25 inch, then .75 inch is the available space for the Header. If you have added more rows to the header, then you may need to adjust the margins to allow more room. If the Top margin were increased to 1.50 inch, the Header would now have 1.25 inch.

Adjusting the margins

  1. From the Financial Statement Editor, choose File > Properties.
  2. In the Statement Properties dialog, increase or decrease the page margins as necessary (Top, Left, Bottom, and Right).
  3. Increase or decrease the Header and Footer margins as necessary.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click the /_images/acct_pr/csa/print-preview.gif button on the toolbar to preview the statement on screen and verify the changes you have made.

Using the ruler as a guideline

When you increase or decrease the left and right margins from the File > Properties dialog, you will see the ruler at the top of the worksheet adjust to show in white how much horizontal working space is available. If a column is under the gray portion of the ruler bar, it appears with a red heading to indicate that it is outside the width of the current page setup and to alert you that you need to adjust the margins or column widths.
