formatting of file in unix

i have a txt file in which it contains some lines each line contains some 350-400 characters
but when i read the file line by line in ksh it is telling the max characters in each line is between 100-127 characters
in each line it contains some values with some spaces in between
when i try to read the entire line through ksh i could see that the spaces are truncated
how to overcome this problem
i even tried converting the file from dos2unix mode using dos2unix command

suggestions welcome
