What is the difference between Missover Truncover and pad

Hi All,

 

Please help me with the difference between Missover Truncover and pad.

 

Also Is there any method by which we can declare all variables in a file in input statement in one go?

 

Thanks and regards,

Ankita Roy

Always use Truncover, don't use Missover+Pad which is very older than Truncover, and more important at sometime when you use Missover + COLUMN INPUT METHOD will generate the error result.
