Re: suppress extra characters in PDF file

What operating system are you currently generating this output on? Was this output moved from a different operating system?

What you are seeing are MVS printer control characters.

Unfortunately, it's been so long since I've worked in MVS that I can't remember how to get rid of them.

If you are creating the file using RECFM=VBA, change this to RECFM=VB.
