Randy, SETPTR can be used to set the line length/page width. SETPTR ,145,,,,,NODEFAULT,BRIEF Should set it to 145 characters. NODEFAULT says do not changes anything else and BRIEF suppresses the "OK to set...." prompt.
At the end you could/should reset it to 132. Of course, in a proc, put an H before SETPTR and a P on the next line. Good luck, Don Robinson ________________________________ From: Anthonys Lists <antli...@youngman.org.uk> To: email@example.com Sent: Monday, July 15, 2013 11:52 AM Subject: Re: [U2] SORT reports line length, change right margin?

Seems to be enough room if I could adjust the right margin. Could you shrink any field widths? Are there any text fields which often have wasted space? You can use the FORMAT or FMT (not sure which) modifier to adjust the field width just for that report rather than messing around cluttering up the dictionary. > > MARGIN /n/ only changes the left margin. What margins have been set in SETPTR?
