女:アンケート用紙は、いつ配るんですか。
男:最初からプログラムにはさんであります。

Can someone explain what the さんであります means, from the dictionary it says in between a sandwich, which does not make sense here.

  • You're probably misthinking what "プログラム" means here: it means, in this context, some kind of documents.

    Just a note on question titles. It helps people search for similar questions if the title references the thing you want to know, as opposed to just being the text you are looking at with no context.

This は is not a particle but a part of the verb 挟む ("to insert; to put between").

最初からプログラムにはさんであります。

I have inserted it in your program (leaflet) from the beginning.
It's already inserted in your program.
