Key-in: LOAD DA
Note: Many fonts are proportionally spaced, which can mean that columns in a screen form will not line up correctly when the form is converted to text elements in the design file. For this reason, it is recommended that you use a fixed width font, such as font 3, to preserve column spacing.
