Is the file defined FBA or VBA?

Seems like a TSO/ISPF topic.

Yes - your file is probably defined FBA or VBA which means the first byte is treated as a carriage control character and is not displayed in browse.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

What happens if you enter a DISPLAY CC command?
