    Didn't even know you could do this natively with Opera. It worked pretty good for me.

    I use PDFCreator. This installs as a printer driver that you can select when you press Ctrl-P or Sh-Ctrl-P. http://www.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator

  • Hello Guys! Sorry for the delayed response. Iam on Windows 8 & Desktop Version of Opera goes as 34.0.2036.25.

    To rif:-

    Hello, Please note that the quoted Hyperlink hosts a Web page which contain both Horizontal & Verticals Scrolls. Therefore, kindly make sure that the .pdf Output you were able to fetch by PDFCreator does really contain the entire length & breadth of the source page..!?

    Inputs will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you.

    This appears to be the result of a flaw in the coding of this page: Both Internet Explorer 10 and Chrome 48 display the same truncation issue.

    The solution that worked best was to save this page as a Web archive (MHT) and then open in Excel 2010, which captures all of the data in the document. Amazingly, Word 2010 displayed the same truncation issue, even though it also captured all of the data.

    Even after importing into Excel you still have an issue because they appear to have exported an Excel document to the Web with a merged cell (the "Central Ministries/Departments" cell) that is difficult to print without unmerging this cell. After that, it's just a question of setting print areas.

    That was a chore! Sucker for a challenge I guess 🙂

  • So busy deciphering this document I forgot that you wanted PDF print. Then you would need a PDF printer driver under MS Office. I'm experimenting with the PDF printer driver from doPDF to have general Windows 8 print-to-PDF functions.

  • Took one more look at this viewing the HTML source for the page and noticed this code near the beginning:

    'META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0"'

    'body bgcolor='#ffffff' text='#993300''

    'table width='170%''

    Saving this as a local, editable HTML document and setting table width='100%' (please note the single quotes surrounding the percentage value) completely resolved this issue without importing into Excel; however, Excel does have the "Rows to repeat at top" feature in Page Setup that the browser print setups don't allow.

    OK. Now we're done 🙂
