Procedure documentation Organizing Lists with Multiple Pages  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


If your list is too large to be displayed on one page, the width of the columns is automatically reduced to the size of the type area. The height of the list is not changed; the printout contains as many pages as are required for the complete list.

You can specify how you want to split the information from the list across the various pages.

      Repeat column header

If the width of the paper is sufficient, but the height of the paper is not, you can specify whether the column header is to appear on every page.

      Fit to page

If the list is only slightly larger than the paper, you can reduce the size so that it fits on one page.

      Spread list across multiple pages

If you want to spread the list over multiple pages, you specify whether the column header is to appear on every subsequent page. You also specify whether columns that are defined as fixed columns are to be repeated on subsequent adjacent pages.



       1.      To spread the list information across multiple pages, open the Settings dialog box (see Using the Dialog Box with Settings for the List).

       2.      Choose the Print Version tab page.

       3.      Choose one of the following options in the Scaling area:

Spreading the List Across Multiple Pages

If the list…


... is only slightly larger than the paper in both width and height

Fit to Page

... fits to the width of one page, but must be spread across multiple pages due to the height

Fit to Page Width

... is too large for one page in both width and height


       4.      Use the indicators for the relevant options to specify which information is to be repeated on the subsequent pages:
