Problem:The need for a very descriptive column heading on a report that has very limited space available
Solution: ‘Stack’ the column heading to be output by making the alternate column heading (atb. 3) within the dictionary item multi-valued. (hint: multi-value’s aren’t only for the data portion of a file)
Example: The dictionary word is called #PD (number of days past due) and will output the number of days that an individual invoice is past due. The length or width of the dictionary word is 4.
Alternate column heading
Correlative - calculation of the days past due
Note: The ] is actually a multi-value mark (while holding down the control key, press the right bracket). Use of the multi-value mark will force the following string of data to be output on the following row. The resulting column heading will appear as: DAYS PAST DUE.
