ways, e.g., enlarging the font size and shrinking the document to fit
within an 8 ½ x 11 inch page, but all attempts have rendered the
spreadsheet illegible and/or resulted in each row extending
horizontally for multiple pages.

necessary to establish a relevant threshold for the determination of
whether the class certification standards have been met.
