I am creating a report in plain cobol, can I align this report to center of report page ?

I am not using any report writing tool.
Please let me know if you need any more details.

Hello,

Sure.

Determine the width of the data first. Let's say the data is 75 positions wide. Let's also say the print line is 132 plus 1 position for carriage control.

To center the report data on the report, declare a FILLER of 29 (half of the area not needed for the data report) and then begin the report data.
