132 column printing


Need your help in sorting out 'printing in broader print width' on 132 column paper, using redHAT Linux 9.0 / OpenOffice ver 1.1.

Detailed Background:
I have installed Linux redHAT 9.0 and OpenOffice 1.1 on it. I have document in spreadsheet that is having many columns. I need to print it on 132 column printer. Same document prints 132 columns in MS Windows/ Excel Office Suite Software printing all (and as many columns as required).
Now, when I print using Linux/OpenOffice setup, it does print all required columns. But, paper width in which it prints all characters that it takes is too less. It prints it in almost 65% of the width (as compared to width occupied in MS Windows/Excel case).

I have used Epson C' driver software in Linux case. Resulution is 180*180.

When I use A4 size paper, print width occupied in that case, is same as in case of MS Windows/Excel case. There is no problem in that case.

Prints same information in 'lesser width' of the paper. I need it to print same amount of informaiton by 'occupying wider space' along the same line.

I request if any one can throw light on 'by using what other alternatives' can I solve problem?
