"Check your columns twice, code once" to mangle an old adage.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

As both NicC and dneufarth say, check your position twice, at least. ISPF VIEW or BROWSE provide the COLS option as either a primary (it's entered on the command line) or line (it's entered on the line prefix that shows the line number) command. In browse, it might be a good idea to enter the DISPLAYCC primary command for data sets with carriage control. You still have to add 4 for a data set containing variable length records.

Before Frank Yaeger retired I actually got him to admit that sort screwed up years ago when they didn't make it automatically include the RDW. We both agreed it's too late now!
