Help wrapping data in Windows 2000

SQL*Plus and Windows 2000 do not seem to be compatible, for WRAP. When I go into the environmental settings and play around with everything (buffer, line size, page size), I either get the data truncated to the right, leaving off columns, or I get the data with the column headings truncated even before the data, or I get a program error.

SQL*Plus and Windows 2000 do not seem to be compatible, for WRAP. When I go into the environmental settings and play around with everything (buffer, line size, page size), I either get the data truncated to the right, leaving off columns, or I get the data with the column headings truncated even before the data, or I get:
PROGRAM ERROR:
PLUS33W.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. 
You will need to restart the program.
Once I get this error, I then get it a lot, and have to keep getting back into SQL*Plus.

To see my data, I always have to SPOOL it, which is a pain, and something I do not want to always have to do.

I would start by checking your database versions, as I've seen this before when you are using incompatible SQL*Net clients (connecting from an old SQL*Net client to a newer database). Download the latest 10g client for SQL*Plus.

Here is a good description of debugging the wrap utility from Dave Moore's book Oracle Utilities. The book is also a good detailed reference.
