I know you can force columns to display with an ACROSS statement like this:

ACROSS BUSINESS COLUMNS 1 AND 2 AND 3 AND 4 AND 5

If my Acrross column values are as follows:

A&H Excess
A&H Pro Rata
Casualty Excess
Casualty Pro Rata
Esurance

How do I write the across taking into account that my column names have ampersands and spaces

It tried:
ACROSS BUSINESS COLUMNS A&|H Excess AND A|&H Pro Rata AND Casualty Excess AND Casualty Pro Rata AND Esurance

but it get errors

Try putting single quotes around your column names.

Thanks the SINGLE quotes worked. This was final way to format the across

ACROSS BUSINESS AS '' COLUMNS 'A&|H Excess' AND 'A&|H Pro Rata' AND 'Casualty Excess' AND 'Casualty Pro Rata' AND 'Esurance'
