In PATGuard 3

1. In the reports tab right click on the desired report and select Edit.

2. Once in the Designer ensure you are in the ‘Report Structure’ window select ‘Table: ASSETS [[Locations2Assets]]’ as per the below.

3. Double click on the area under the column you wish to shrink in the report preview to open a new window, see below.

4. In the right hand list select ‘Fit’.

5. Use the dropdown to select ‘2 (shrink)’ and press OK.

6. Back in the ‘Report Structure’ window select the next ‘Table: ASSETS’ and repeat the process.

7. Depending upon which report, you will need to do this 4 or 8 times.

8. Press Save, to confirm your changes.
