If you are speaking strictly of Report (Proc)
then you have to take a look at Ray Pass and McNeill Proc report doin'it in
paper 15 at Sugi 28 Tuesday 1 april pm 3:30 Room 6E
This paper is already accessible on the web at
So you have a look at how to create html file
but in the case of pdf file normally you substitute "ods html ..." with
and "body=....htm" with "file="....... .pdf"
even if for proc report the style must be putted into the sas proc code mainly.
In relation with the specific problems of Style/PDF they are mentionned in
the SAS Institute FAQ
in each part of elements of the template
With pdf you can implement high quality of graph too
but always think at the fact that HTML page is not the same as letter/A4
page (pdf or rtf)
so you have (depending of your output) to adapt some time the style.
