Subject:      Re: Delete page breaks in Proc Report

In article <s8293bb2.004@>, Richard Kerwin <RichardKerwin@FIRSTHEALTH.COM> wrote: > Dear SAS-L, > I am in the modifying a reporting process and need some help. The process I am modifying is written in SQL, and generates 14 reports with each report containing data on several hundred different variables(bus_ent_id). My users aren't exactly crazy about this, so I have modified the process so that it generates several hundred reports by bus_ent_id that each contain the info that was in the 14 previous reports. Because the users still want customized reports, what I actually have is 14 individual PROC Reports on each of the several hundred bus_ent_ids. Many of these reports are considerably less than one page long, so I am hoping someone knows how to suppress the white space and page breaks in the first 13 reports, and break on only the last report. > I and the trees in Oregon thank you for any responses. > Rich Kerwin >

Hi Rich. I don't use PROC REPORT, but have you tried using OPTIONS DFORMDLIM='-'; ?? This SAS option lets you tell it what to use a page break. If you set to ' ' (I believe) it defaults to using the real page break character. But if you set it to '-' it puts dashes in between reports, so multiple reports print on one page. Then before you print your 14th report, set it back to ' ' to get a real page break.

Hope this helps...
