I have created a document in Wordpad. Everything looks aligned properly on the screen, but when I print it, the right
side of the report jumps out of alignment. Some words are moved way over the margin limit. example below:

choice of bacon, ham, or sausage........................................... $ 3.50
choice of bacon, ham, or sausage..................................................$ 3.00
choice of bacon, ham, or sausge............................................. $3.50
and so on....i have tried setting differnt margin, etc. nothing helps. My deadline is here and
I need so help....thanks.....Susan

Why are you making life difficult and using Wordpad? Surely you must have
Office - Word at the very least? Wordpad is for basic editing. If you don't
have Word, suggest you purchase it.

Hardly a constructive answer to the question. I assume you don't know the
answer so why respond?

It is. It appears she's running a business and it isn't very businesslike to
be using a simple text editor for word processing. If she was using Word she
wouldn't be having a problem.

Besides, I don't see /you/ offering anything (more) constructive.

So you are a Business Efficiency Consultant now!

The reason I didn't offer advice as I was uncertain of the solution to the
problem. My response was directed at you, or hadn't you noticed?
