Subject: #BYVALn without NOBYLINE
Usually when I include a "BY" variable in a title I will
specify OPTIONS NOBYLINE; but I want to get the standard
byline displayed as well as putting the page break byvalues
on the Page header. Something like this:
/* OPTIONS NOCENTRE NOBYLINE;*/
PROC PRINT DATA=COMP1 NOOBS LABEL WIDTH=UNIFORM;
BY DIVISION REGION STORE;
TITLE1 'PRETTY HEADER THAT FOLLOWS CORPORATE STANDARD';
TITLE2 'AND MAKES LIFE EASY FOR INFOPAC';
TITLE3 'DIVISION:#BYVAL1 REGION:#BYVAL2';
Unfortunately, the last page of any by-group has a header that
shows the values for the first values on the NEXT page.
I can see the logic in why this should happen, but I don't find
it very useful.
1. Does anyone have any suggestions for work arounds.
(I can recast this as a DATA _NULL_ with PUT statements - but
I would rather not)
2. Can anyone explain why this should be the desirable behavior?
(that is: "It's not a bug - it's a feature")
3. Is this a candidate for the SASware Ballot?
