Subject: Re: how to remove '1' on the first column of the output
if it is really the very first 1 and you are on zOS, you should not remove
it. It is a ASA control char for printers and means "new page". That is
important for the printers to know what you want to be at the beginning of
the page. So you can be sure, that the printout looks properly.
Also several tools which are used to view outputs that are designed for
printers interpret that chars (1, 0, -, +, blank) properly and format
output with them. A example is VPW (Virtual Paper Writer), not sure if
that is still in use in that form.
You can also try to use the record formats like RECFM=FBA or VBA if you
define output files.
looking at the list, that seems to be not the problem. That list looks
like a PROC PRINT output (?). If it is one, you could use the option NOOBS
proc print data=sashelp.class NOOBS;
with SPLIT= you can give a split character which is used to split long
labels as column header.
