If the the printer will only print 80 column rather than 136, and you know your print job is 136 columns, firstly check the menu settings to ensure the printer is not set to 8inch width. If the printer is set to 8inch width you will not be able to print more than 80 columns.
If you are printing from a Window application you will need to ensure you have the correct paper size (ie 13.6 inch wide) selected in the Application AND the printer driver.

If you are sure the print data is wider than 80 column and the printer menu is set to 136 column and you still are not able to print wider than 80 column it may be necessary to reset the device back to factory settings. (Before doing this I would recommend printing the current settings or make a note of the current settings as you will need to set the device back up again)

To reset the device to factory default;
  1. Start with the printer powered off
  2. Hold down the four grey buttons under the LCD
  3. Keep the four grey buttons held down and power the printer ON
  4. Keep the four grey buttons held down until you see 'Loading Default' of the printer has finished initializing.
Once you have done this you should be able to print 136 column prints.
If you can not I would suspect the data is not greater than 80 columns in width and you would need to check the computer system set up.

I need to the piece is that keeps the transmision

You need a gear shift cable. just had one replaced. The little plastic ring piece at teh end broke and fell off the cable and Ford stated that I needed to replace whole cable since the little piece was not sold as an individual part. To get it fix ranges from $200 -$300 unless you know how to take off steering column and replace it. The part/cable actual costs about 70-80 bucks. Good luck!

P5010 line printer, I want to print in condensed mode

This can be done by sending an "escape sequence" to the printer. Basically you create a text file using Notepad and then print it. Of course the magic escape codes to do this are found in your P5010 Owners / Users Manual. I don't have a copy at hand. If yours has been misplaced, you're pretty much out of luck. As a long shot you can try the standard Epson codes for condensed print.

Macro code for copying a range of cells from one Excell w/sheet t

You did not respond to my claification request. Here is some code that might help, it copies a selection of cells going down until an emty cell is found and across until an emty cell is found. This is form an earlier version of office but should comeclose to woring in 2007.

Sub copyrange()
' copyrange Macro
' Macro written by Royal 11/22/2008.

'save the return values
wksname = ActiveSheet.Name
returncell = ActiveCell.Address
searchfor = ActiveCell.Value

Flex Grid

The most common multidimensional array, the two dimensional array table, is best presented to your users in row and column format. The grid control offers a convenient way for you to display table data to your users. The users can navigate the table's values using scrollbars. Therefore, the grid control does not have to be as large as the table, because the grid control automatically displays scrollbars.
To add the flex grid control to your toolbox, select project and components. Add the flex grid control:
lesson97-1.jpg Once it is added, you will see the yellow flex grid control in your toolbox:
lesson97-2.jpg When you place the grid control on your form, you will have to resize it before the control takes on a tabular appearance. As you expand the size of the control, it does not look to much like a table. The problem is that the table's default number of rows and columns are two. To fix this problem, you must configure the rows and columns in the properties window:
lesson97-3.jpg lesson97-4.jpg lesson97-5.jpg The grid control supports fixed rows and columns. These refer to rows and columns in a grid control that do not scroll when the user clicks the scrollbars. The fixed rows and columns provides labels that describe the data. The fixed rows and columns are often called row and column headers.
lesson97-6.jpg When working with the grid control, much code is needed to provide the grid with functionality. Call statements are used to break the code required by the grid control into smaller, more manageable procedures. This is referred to as modular programming (which refers to the practice of placing code with a single purpose in a general subroutine procedure and then calling the code from a second procedure.)
Here is the code for the form load procedure (this example is based on the computer disk example used in the last lesson)

Private Sub Form_Load()
Call SizeCells
Call CenterCells

grdGrid.Row = 0
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "Single Sided; Low Density "
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; Low Density"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "Singled Sided; High Density"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "Double Sided; High Density"

grdGrid.Row = 1
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "3 1/2 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$2.30"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.75"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$3.20"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$3.50"

grdGrid.Row = 2
grdGrid.Col = 0
grdGrid.Text = "5 1/4 inch"
grdGrid.Col = 1
grdGrid.Text = "$1.75"
grdGrid.Col = 2
grdGrid.Text = "$2.10"
grdGrid.Col = 3
grdGrid.Text = "$2.60"
grdGrid.Col = 4
grdGrid.Text = "$2.95"

End Sub
Notice how the form load procedure is used to populate the cells in the grid control. To control cell size and cell alignment, two smaller procedures are created and each procedure is called by the form load procedure.

Private Sub SizeCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

grdGrid.ColWidth(0) = 1100

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColWidth(intColumn) = 2200
Next intColumn

End Sub

Private Sub CenterCells()
Dim intColumn As Integer

For intColumn = 1 To 4
grdGrid.ColAlignment(intColumn) = flexAlignCenterCenter
Next intColumn

End Sub

Notice that the size and alignment procedures are only applied to columns 1 through 4. Column 0, which is a fixed column reserved for labels, is not formatted using either of the above two procedures.
Here is the final result:
