I have a Word document (.doc) containing a table which spans across 150 pages or so. Table cells contain long text lines which are word-wrapped to fit into given column width, making them multi-line. My goal is to adjust the width so that text inside the cells takes fewer lines, to reduce the number of pages before printing.
The table occupies the whole page width, so I can only make a column wider if I make another one narrower. By resizing columns manually, I managed to get the table under 130 pages. I wonder it there's a way to do this automatically and further reduce the number of pages required. Manual procedure leading to near-optimum result in a finite number of steps would also do.
I have Microsoft Office 2013, but I'm willing to download a different tool if needed, as long as it can be installed without admin rights.
PS. I have seen this question which seems to ask for the same thing, but answers provided there ("AutoFit to Contents") don't seem to work.
