[CLOSED]Blank line at the top of the report

I have a report that is producing a blank line at the top of the report output. I can suppress this by using ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD but then a 1 appears at the first character. If I use ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOPAGE then I can suppress the 1 but a blank line appears on the first row. Is there any way I can have both the data start in the first row and remove the 1? I've tried using both but it doesn't work.

TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
MODEL
BODYTYPE
DEALER_COST
BY MODEL SUBHEAD
"TEST"
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOPAGE
-*ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
END

In this example the default output format is HTML. Do you have an ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT WP? That's the only way I see the 1 (which I think is used for printer control). Also what version of WF are you using?

I am emailing the report. I've tried various .txt output formats. 7705 is what I am currently using.

This came in in later 7.6 version. Perhaps it may help.

I've tried that too, but I think it only works with PDF outputs.

Again, from what I've researched SET DROPBLNKLINE=ON only works for PDF's.

Check the "LINES" set if its more than 999 then it will add some blank lines.
