How to export a wide report to text

P: n/a
Hi, I am having the following issue:
I have a report which I use to create an ASCII file. Its not
necessary to print the report since its going to a file for on screen
view only. The problem is there is no way to get around the page
setup which requires a printer and margins for the report. When I
export with "output to..." text, there are line breaks where the page
margins are. It won't allow margins less than 0.25" or paper size
beyond legal. There is no way to create, in effect, an infinite page.
I have used an Envoy print driver in the past that came with an old
version of the WordPerfect suite, but I can't seem to install that in
Windows XP.

Is there a special printer driver available for download that can
mimic an "infinite page" for export purposes or a workaround to the
margins problem?

I am having the same problem in exporting reports to text. A solution that I have come up with is to create an landscape document 11x17, change the font sizes to tiny so that they fit in 17" less margins. Most lines fit this way.

If you have come up with a prefect solution, please advise
