I found the same thing for the PDF destination as well (at least, under V8.2 for Windows NT) - order variable values did not repeat on subsequent pages.

With respect to column width, the quick fix is to adjust some column widths using the STYLE option on the DEFINE statements. Another option is to play with the CELLSPACING and CELLPADDING options.

To keep your columns uniform across pages, use the UNIFORM option on your ODS statement: ODS PDF FILE="filename" UNIFORM ;

Good luck! - Wendy
