In the resulting file, abaqus.rpt, we have 3 columns: time, reaction, and displacement. Time is written because we left All XY Data selected. The remaining columns are ordered like in the screenshot. Here is an abridged version of the .rpt file with the title line commented for GNUPlot:

#                  X               XYData-1           XYData-2    

                0.                -0.                 0.
