richard, thank you for responding....your first 'do if' only put the title in the log. the second suggestion (title ' '.) didn't show or print the title. I understand the page break concept but I don't know the "\n" work around that you say won't work anyway. btw I'm using version 11.5.2. susan

TITLE and SUBTITLE commands affect all subsequent page titles, and since they are both "page" titles they both generate a page break; so what you're actually seeing is a page with the title text immediately followed by a new page with the title and subtitle text.

I'd recommend using just the TITLE command with the "\n" convention to create a line break -- but that doesn't seem to work with the TITLE command.

If all you want is a "title" and "subtitle" before some block of output, not necessarily at the start of a page, you could use:

do if ($casenum=1). print /'my title' /'my subtitle'. end if.

If you also want this at the start of a new page, you could include a blank title command:

title ''. do if ($casenum=1). print /'my title' /'my subtitle'. end if.

TITLE 'IPEDS Winter Collection - MSUfacstaff20032004'. SUBTITLE 'FT Faculty/Staff by EEO Code'. CROSSTABS /TABLES= var013 BY var059 /FORMAT=AVALUE TABLES /CELLS=COUNT.
