I have following code:

set pagesize 60
set linesize 80

column today new_value _date noprint
select to_char(sysdate, 'fmMonth DD, YYYY') today
from dual;

column Member_Name format A12
column Volume format A7

ttitle center "Books Currently Checked Out"  skip 1 -
center "Today's Date: " _DATE skip 1 -
skip center "Page:" format 999 sql.pno skip 2

SELECT Borrows_Call_No AS Call_No, Borrows_Vol AS Volume, Due_Date, Fine_Amount, Member_Name
FROM Member, Borrows
WHERE Borrows.Borrows_Member_ID = Member.Member_ID AND Borrows.Checked_In='N'
ORDER BY Fine_Amount DESC;

which produces this output:

                         Books Currently Checked Out
                          Today's Date: April 27, 2002

                                    Page:   1





                           Books Currently Checked Out
                          Today's Date: April 27, 2002

                                    Page:   1

CALL_NO    VOLUME  DUE_DATE  FINE_AMOUNT MEMBER_NAME
---------- ------- --------- ----------- ------------

...

How can I have it just print out the title once?

Thanks!

Adding a TTITLE OFF as below:

ttitle off             -- clear
