in reply to Format, empty vars, and fixed-width records

When I change the line
) = 'A' .. 'P';
) = 'A' .. 'W';

    Unfortunately, I can't change the data to make the line print out to character 129. I have to have nothing but pad characters (spaces) from the last real data out to the end of the record.

    It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.
      Sorry, that is evident after a more careful reading of the original post.
