Print multiple header rows in a report

I have a customized Portfolio report that has three rows in the header for column names, but when I print, only one row shows. Is there a way to print the header rows I see on the monitor?

    I use Quicken 2019, Ver R20.15 and print using File/Print Portfolio.
    I do know I can export to Excel and do it there, but I update this report often and it's a fair amount of work for the benefit. It would be nice of Quicken printed as wysiwyg printing.

    What header row are you seeing?  And what additional rows do you want to see?
    And how, exactly, are you producing this report?
    Can you take a snapshot of the multiple headers (using the Windows Snipping Tool, in your Accessories folder) and post it here for us to see?  We don't need the data ... just those header rows.

    @NotACPA,

    He is doing File/Print from a Portfolio view. On-screen, multi-word column headers wrap to more lines if necessary. When printed, they are truncated with a ...

    This is particularly annoying if you have two columns like "Avg. Annual Return (%) 1-year" and  "Avg. Annual Return (%) 3-year" and they are both truncated to "Avg. Ann..."

    When I do FILE/Print, here's what I see in QWin R20.15
    I printed the report just now, and got the exact same thing.
    SO, I ask again, what is the OP getting and what are they expecting?
    And, in my Portfolio view, the only thing above those column headers is the portfolio settings.

    Not comparing the print preview to the printed report, comparing the on -screen Investing > Portfolio view


    to the preview and printed output

    That would appear to be GRAPHIC printing, vs TEXT printing, which Q actually uses.

    I think it is more like the File/Print formatting is a vestige of the DOS days.

    The real reports use a more modern report generator

    This is what I see on the monitor and would like to print.

    And this is what prints (one line header).

    The above screen shots show what I see when I have Quicken open on my monitor, but when I print the Portfolio report, the header has so little info that I need to use a pen to write in the column names. I can’t widen the columns and keep the table one page wide.

    Are you printing Portrait or Landscape?  Try Landscape.

    Charles ,

    Quicken needs to make the changes you desire. There is no setting within Quicken, right now for you to change.

    You are printing from the Invest Tab which shows 3 line header. And Quicken only prints 1 line for the Column Header.

    This is definitely still an annoying issue with report formatting. Please keep it on the enhancement list

    I have always been of the opinion that what you see on the screen for a report should be what is printed.

    I agree with @UserDavidC, what you see on the screen is what you should get when printing.
