Have you considered not doing it with ODS? Perhaps doing it in Word or some other facility that handles formatting documents better?

Word 2007, for example, outputs to PDF and it handles XML. It would seem that you could fully lay out your document in Word 2007, then generate the XML with just the changed areas you need.

I have just been told that this problem was NOT fixed with v9.1.3. Has anyone managed to get it to work with sas v9.1.3 as there might be a specific setting that needs to be used or there might be a workaround.

Just what is up with their R&D if they go down the path of developing the ODS PDF destination functionality and yet it is still not possible to create a decent pure B&W print layout scheme that actually works as intended?
