Capture File in Procomm Plus V4.8

This issue has been solved. See solution.


We are using Procomm Plus terminal (V4.8) in Windows XP to capture inventory data from a Unix system to transfer to a windows based system. I want to capture data that is 263 bytes long and write it to a single line. I turned off the line wrap setting but am only getting 80 bytes of data and the rest is lost (truncated). If I turn on the line wrap setting, each data record wraps around 4 lines. Is there a way to capture all 263 bytes on a single line?

I am using Wyse 50 as my terminal type. I am fairly certain there was a way to do this in an earlier version of Procomm but I am stumped at this point...
