I have 23 columns in one Listing and wanted to create a .rtf file listing. I want to manually assign the columns on each page. But, could't find the way. Please guide me. 


So, the question is how to assign columns to each page, for example page 1 = col1-col7 then page 2= col8-col12 then page3= col13-col20 and page4= col21-23.

Real generic:


proc print data=have;
   var col1 - col7;
proc print data=have;
   var col8 - col12;

repeat as needed. You likely will need to spell out your variables.


Note: IF you have any record identfier that should be the first variable(s) in any proc print. Otherwise "reading" this stuff will quickly become a chore. Also if there are enough rows of data to go to the next page it gets worse. You may need to change papersize option or use an ODS style with smaller fonts to fit all the rows on a single page.


I know I am not terribly interested in reading data in this format and I've done that as this is the ancient, as in 1987, Lotus 123 PRN format.
