You didn't include comma's in your header column. Add comma's between the variable names and then open the file in Excel, it should look fine. If you want it to line up in columns in word pad that is NOT a CSV file, its a fixed width file format, that I would recommend avoiding.
Also, you can use proc export instead of manually writing your datastep export if you'd like.
proc export data=have outfile="mycsv.csv" dbms=csv replace; run;
