How to adjust table or content in CSS when printing?

so I have this huge data table and I want to fit them all when I print it in a

legal
size paper. Right now all I have is the size of the paper but the content does not fit to it

Here is my
CSS
codes:

@page {
size: legal;
}
@page :left {
margin: 0.5cm;
}

@page :right {
margin: 0.5cm;
}


and here is my
table
:

<div class="table-responsive">
<table border="1" style="table-layout: fixed;" align="center">
<caption class="center">PERSONAL</caption>
<tr>
<th align="left">NAME: </th>
<td colspan="3"><input type="text" name="full_name" size="37" value="<?php echo $full_name; ?>" disabled></td>
<th colspan="1" align="left">MOBILE: </th>
<td><input type="text" name="phone_number" size="11" value="<?php echo $phone_number; ?>" disabled></td>
<th align="left">RANK: </th>
<td><input type="text" name="crew_rank" size="10" value="<?php echo $crew_rank; ?>" disabled></td>

</tr>
<tr>

<td colspan="7" align="center"><input type="text" name="address" size="111" value="<?php echo $address; ?>" disabled></td>
</tr>
</table>


Note: I did not include all the data in
table

Answer

Assuming the table can fit to a single page you could use print media queries.

@print{
.table-responsive:{
height:95%;
}
}
