Milligan, Have a SAS manual? You can use the @ as a column pointer as in: PUT @21 var1; which translates to write var1 starting at column 21 or as a line-hold specifier when used as a trailing at as in: PUT @21 var1 @; which translates to write var1 starting at column 21 and (the second @) hold the line so that the next PUT (could be used in reading also) is on the same line.

HTH,
