This is a method for generating a formatted report complete with column headings and totals, without requiring the problem programmer to go through the detailed calculations and tedious coding necessary to determine end positions. This generated report includes the spacing of fields and/or literals to identify the total lines. If there is too much information to fit on one line, a second line complete with column headings and totals is created automatically.
