    I went to My Forms/Report/ Columns, and unchecked the fields I didn't want to include; I only wanted 9 fields out of 20.  But when I printed the form, it included all the fields.  

    Also, the report had the wide spacing of each column, ignoring my work to narrow all the columns so all the data could fit on one page.

    I saved the report to show you, but can't find where it is.

    This option works only for the report's current view, and will not get saved as a preference.

    Please create a standalone Grid Listing report for your form instead, so you will have the option to check only the fields that you want to include.

    Likewise, the report's ability to resize the columns are available only for the report's current view or instance. The column widths will not get saved as a preference for that report.

    Unfortunately, the same goes for the standalone Grid Listing report.
