You're a genius! I overlooked that the report is printing 175 column and the print setting is 132 column. That's the reason why the text is wrapping around. I feel stupid now.
Thanks for your help.
Its a long time since I worked on Unix/AIX and cannot recollect print settings in this environment.
the following are some checks I would do to narrow down the background to the problem
the first thing I would do would be to amend the SPOOL options on the report-function to output the results to a text file. I would then check the results in the text file, is it outputting 132 per line. Once you've proven the ouutput to file is OK you can then be more certain that the problem is related to the actual printers.
Outside of Pro-Iv, from the unix command line can you generate output of a text file that has 132 characters per line and prrint this output to the printer. Therefore checking that the printer can print up to 132.
I also have an AIX.pdf which has a lsecrion on on Printing, If you would like this pdf then send on your e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll forward it to you.
