Advise drawing Large Data model

I am trying to draw a large data model, where there are quite a lot of tables and relationships with a lot of fields.  However I have only drawn a few of the tables and already it has gone over the print page.

I am new to visio and have figured out how to do all the entity relationships and all but am not sure how to go about with this model as it is quite large.  How do I fit all the tables etc on the page. How do I draw the diagram over multiple pages?  What is the best way to go about this etc. Will it be OK when printed?

Can I also make the entities I have already drawn smaller?

I hope my prob is clear.

Help appreciated.
