tab moving to new line

by Leon Schrecengost (no login)


I don't know why the pgm is ignoring the semi colon after the tab. It moves the following print strings to a new line.The following is the code. If I remove the tab it prints all strings on the same line but the first string is not indented.

PRINT #1, TAB(12);,Z$(0,1),TAB(26);,Z1$(0,2),TAB(40);,Z2$(0,1),Z2$(0,2)

Everything after the tab 12 prints on the same line only down one
Any ideas?
