should cram the docid and title field together (with a space
separating)

Unfortunately when displayed, it still treats the first field as
length 100 so the screen is mostly blank as shown.

Any ideas how to cram fields together with a single space or two
between?

The report writer for STRSQL, the Query/400 report writer, does not have any option for showing only one character as a separator between fields. To get that result, combine the results into one result-field\expression. One of the following might be desirable; given an apparent attempt to use the query results as a formatted result, rather than using the query to select the full and proper data from those two fields:

select char( rtrim(left(docid,25)) concat ' ' concat
rtrim(left(title,30)) , 56) as "Doc ID + Title"
...

select char( substr(docid, 1, 25)) concat ' ' concat
rtrim(left(title,30)) , 56) as "Doc ID + Title"
...
