Carey, There are two manner to utilize data _null_; with ods

ods listing close; ods rtf file="d:\ods\rtf\datanull.rtf"; data _null_; set (obs=10); file print notitles ; put @2 group 3. @10 runtime 5.2 @20 runpulse 6.1 +5 age 2.; run; ods rtf close; ods listing close; ods rtf file="d:\ods\rtf\datanullods.rtf"; data _null_; set (obs=10); file print notitles ods=(var=(group runtime runpulse age diff)); diff=maxpulse-runpulse; put group runtime runpulse age diff; run; ods rtf close;

All two are working good. Mikael Rhoads is right saying there is a print destination preexisting.

The difference between the two is that notitles has no effect in the second manner but you can enriched or modify quite a lot with titles footnotes and template in the second case. Of course if your original file print ... mask a special use of file print like header= and so on i cannot garanty it works in the second manner(You can try).

If so, can you shed any light on my problem? Thank you.
