Inorder to achieve this you may need to insert the escape characters between the tabbed column where you need to reduce the font size..
The ascii characters also help which you may need to insert which depends on the manufacturer of the printer.
Font size in character mode report cannot be control through Oracle Report.
You can use report .prt file or manually set the printer to print character in small size.

It is possible and I have done it...
Open the report output (txt file) in edit in dos mode.
Press ctrl and some keys u will find ascii chars getting displayed.
Based on the printer we need to insert the ascii chars to reduce the font.
then copy the ascii and paste in the oracle reports...
u will find the amazing result
That's very interesting observation!
Thanks, Let me try it on my side.
