After long years SI finally has provided a very strong output tool named
ODS. And you don't want to use it????? You really prefer ugly .TXT files
instead? Perhaps there are people here who understand that - I don't!
Do you have good reasons for that?
If you want to replace the 'fffffff...'s you might have a look at the
FORMCHAR - option. Many years ago that could be used to bring tabulates
and other reports with lines on non-graphical printers.
to find out at which positions the chars you need are. Then replace them
Perhaps you get ist with formchar=" -"
