I just tried DSPF, and it looks the same way:


************Beginning of data**************  
a   n e w   t e s t                          
************End of Data********************  

A space between each character.

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Kelly

Hi,
have you tried to see the file natively with DSPF or EDTF ?
