Chapter 5. Make a Simple Database > Print your database

Print your database

Of course you can print any of the information in your database. Often you will want to limit the records you print by first finding or matching certain criteria. When you print, only the visible records (the ones you found or matched) will print.

  1. If you want to limit the records, find or match the ones to print.

  2. From the Layout menu, choose "Browse" if you want to print the data as the record displays it, or "List" if you want to print a list.

  3. If you're printing a list, the fields can stretch across several pages. Go to the Window menu and choose "Page Preview" (AppleWorks 5) or "Page View" (AppleWorks 6).

    You will get a preview of how your database will look on the printed page. You might need to enlarge the window as large as possible (drag in the Size Box in the bottom-right corner of the window). Or click the little mountain icon (in the bottom-left corner of the window, as shown on page 78) to reduce the picture on the screen.

    Right in the preview you can make the columns narrower and rearrange them so things fit on the page better (as you did on page 103).

  4. From the File menu, choose "Print…." You might have to experiment with various arrangements to get the printed results you want.
