HW - Heading Width

With this session parameter you determine the width of a column output with a DISPLAY statement.

Possible settings ON The width of a DISPLAY column is determined by either the length of the heading text or the length of the field, whichever is longer.

This is true even if no heading text is output, either because the DISPLAY statement contains the keyword NOHDR or the DISPLAY statement is a subsequent DISPLAY (see also the DISPLAY statement).

OFF The width of a DISPLAY column is determined by the length of the field.

HW=OFF only applies to DISPLAY statements which do not create headers (that is, either a first DISPLAY statement with NOHDR option or a subsequent DISPLAY statement).
