Subject: Re: How to control line break in ods printer pdf file?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"; format=flowed
are you really creating pdf files?
i think you are creating postscript files even if it could be recognized
by Acrobat(or Ghostscript) and transformed into pdf files
Some remarks about your program
1)depending of your level of sas 8.1 or 8.2 you have other possibilities
ods pdf file='....pdf' style=...; works better in 8.2
ods printer pdf file='.....pdf' pdfmark style=... ; works better in 8.1
2) about your template and macro
The code you generate is definitive when sas is executing your program
but you are trying to have some varying code one for the first page and
for the following. it is not permitted
3)proc report does not accept modification of template style table
because like tabulate and print ,those procedure must be modified by style
include in the procedure code.
search in sas l ods & report or ods & tabulate to find many example
or refer to the papers of Sugi like "Proc tabulate: doin'it in style" by
and Sandy McNeill
and the equivalent on "proc report ..." to learn about
Now specifically about your to a new line skip it depend of a split character
I shall study if it really don't work in pdf file.
for the page skip first of all set your options (pagesize=...)before the
opening of the ods pdf destination
