Good Morning,

I'm hoping someone can help me with a problem I am having....

Via JSL....  my user opens a sas data set   (  dt = Open(foo.sas7bdat) )

/* much stuff later */

the jsl is used to do a   Save(foo.jmp)

/* much stuff later */

SAS Export is used to send the data back to a sas data set.

A column in the data changes from 32 chars to 34 chars in the transition.

At no time is that column touched in the code and thus it is not the jsl causing it.

Can someone tell me what is going on in regards to the behavior and if there is an option setting to keep the original column width?

Thanks,

J
