Subject: Re: SAS Pharmaceuticals: Methods for Generating Tables and
At Organon we have an automated process that combines various types of SAS
output into PDF files, containing bookmarks, hyperlinks and a Table of
The SAS output can be everyting: landscape/portrait, PROC REPORT, PROC
TABULATE, PROC GPLOT, DATA _NULL_,...
First, a SAS macro, %_SAS2PS, combines SAS output into one big postscript
This postscript file contains all SAS output, including a Table of Contents
and so-called PDF-mark operators.
PDFmark operators are understood by Acrobat Distiller, which converts these
into PDF bookmarks and hyperlinks.
Then, by running another SAS macro, %_PS2PDF, this postscript file will be
sent through Acrobat Distiller, resulting in a PDF file that contains a
Table of Contents, bookmarks and hyperlinks.
We have been using this procedure a few years now with 6.12 (no ODS!).
For tables that have to go to Word we have a Word template (SAS2WORD) that
converts PROC TABULATE output to genuine Word tables.
