Default How to increase the word page size layout based on the input text file length

I have an input text file(Line size and column size varies depend up on the requirement).



When I convert the text file into word document, obviously the line will span to the next line because of the page layout restriction.
Is there a way to view the output data in word as we see in the text file(only two lines).
?

That post related to VBA code however, I wanted to understand on how the Microsoft word can convert the text file manually with large column data.

If it has less columns then increasing the ruler or changing the view option(as suggested by Charles) work out

Even in web-page view I see a limitation of 22" of page width. That does give a lot of space for characters, but is still limited.
NotePad has been my application when looking at a txt file as a start. I like Word as it helps in parsing data by giving to column number when selecting data. I've also just opened into Excel.
I haven't found one application to accomplish all that I wanted. However, most of my parsing is now down with PowerQuery which is more helpful. Though that may not apply to your situation.

Whether you're using VBA makes no difference to the underlying issue. As I said quite clearly at Stack Overflow:
Quote:
Word is a word processor, not a text editor. The best you can do in Word to minimise line-wrapping is to widen the page and/or reduce the margins.
You could also make the font smaller, but that's hardly the 'best' way to do this...
