'width' is obsolete, it is just suited for LISTING destination . use 'cellwidth' just fine.

Hi: To clarify the use of WIDTH -- There are actually 2 ways to specify WIDTH in PROC REPORT. LISTING destination uses the WIDTH option, not in any special syntax:
define varname / display 'label' width=6;

or you can use a style override for other ODS destinations in which WIDTH and CELLWIDTH are aliases:
define varname / display 'label'
style(column)={width=1.5in color=red};
or
define varname /display 'label'
style(column)={cellwidth=1.5in color=red};

In the simple LISTING example, WIDTH is the number of characters wide the column needs to be when displayed in a fixed pitch font. In the STYLE override examples, WIDTH= or CELLWIDTH= can be used interchangeably and you specify a number, followed by a unit of measure, pixels, inches, cm or percent.
