Default Problem with scaling/aranging table from Excel

I've been trying to fit this excel table for days now and I still can't make it fit in my page.The problem is I need to make it big enough to be filled in and also readeble.


I just want to make it bigger and at the same time fit.Any advice is much apreciated.

If it is too big, either use a larger page or split it up into smaller tables. You can't put a quart in a pint pot.

The table is 35 wide and 46tall.Unfortunately it has to be on the same page and also in landscape layout.Using paste special kind of helps but it's still too small.

In that case you had better supply a magnifying glass with your document, because it is not going to fit.

You could also try reducing the page margins and the font used (e.g. to Arial Narrow)in the table to both increase the table size and make the content more legible.
