quick follow up questions:

the wiki says: For screen formats, the left-most position is 0 and the top row is also 0. The first position on a printer line is also 0, and the first position of a data record is 0.

when I used the sample code as follows:

1) Put (0) (SCREEN=120,24)
2) ran your code and displayed with a MSGBOX

I got: COLS = 120, but first ROWS=23 and then the (WC) line of 24 (after adding 1)

my follow up questions:

1) does this still mean that the addressing of the FORMAT statements is still COLS=0..119 and Rows=0..23
2) is it possible to address the (WC) line directly by using (???,24) in a format statement
