Listing output lines longer than 256 characters?

Is there a way to get line printer type output from PROC REPORT with a linesize greater than 256? One of my colleagues wants to do this.

The limit is 256 which is the maximum LS. After that you might want to look at Data _null_ with the FILE PRINT statement where you can specify the LRECL= option which allows you to go beyond 256.
