Now read the question as a third person, and see for yourself if you are able to understand the question clearly. You have given too less details for anyone to help.

S Ravuri,

this is an IBM mainframe forum.
Since programs written in COBOL, HLASM, C, REXX Scripts, Ezytrieve
and products such as DFSORT can generate reports with dates in the header,
would be nice to know
what are you talking about?

    1. Use a white color ink provided you are printing the report on white-color paper.
    2. Cut that corner.
    3. Don't look at those 8 columns

NODATE on the REPORT statement.

Alhough I like all of Anuj's suggestions.

I've used number three when a user said "I don't want to see that on the report", referring to a date in the title. They were stubborn, but later their boss explained to them how useful it would be to know which day's report they were looking at.
