Issue writing data to output file.

Hi All,

I am having issue when writing the data into mainframe file.

when I print DATA01, I see no issues. but when I write to output file I get completely different data (not as expected).

The record length is approximately 1200.

can someone please help me.

Best Regards,

DATA _NULL_;                                                      
  FILE OUTFL1 NOPRINT NOTITLES       ;                        
  FORMAT VAR1   VAR2 VAR3 VAR4 VAR5 VAR6       $050     
     VAR7   VAR8 VAR9 VAR10 VAR11 VAR12    $100     
     ;                                                        
  SET DATA01 ;                                                    
  IF _N_ = 1 THEN                                                 

  PUT @001 'VAR1,VAR2,VAR3,VAR4,VAR5,VAR6,VAR7,VAR8,VAR9,VAR10,VAR11,' 

  @058 'VAR12,' ;                                             
  PUT @001 VAR1        $050. '","'
