Yes - of course, it depends on what program the data is input to. You'd have to read the program specifications to determine it's requirements for comments. There is no general-purpose method.

Typically, if the program requires that the data not start in the first column, then that usually means the first column is reserved for comments.

What would you expect the commented line to do?
