Show your code (the parts that declare the datasets and records) and JCL (use the code tags). Carriage control characters are byte 1 of line as you woud have discovered if you had bothered to actually read the other topic that you posted to.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Do not ask questions via private messages. No one is asking you to show data just the SELECT/ASSIGN and the related JCL. You can obfuscate any dataset names.

What kind of printer? What does the DD look like for the file you are printing to?

That looks like your input dataset (not file). What about the information for your output DD as requested by Robert and the COBOL code for declaring the output as requested by me?
