SAS help error: SAS System Options FORMCHAR

Hi all. I'm using

SAS 9.2 TS Level 2M0

W32_VSPRO platform

Windows 7 version 6.1.7601

In SAS help, the example using the FORMCHAR option is missing an equals sign.

Gordon

SAS System Options

FORMCHAR= System Option


Syntax

FORMCHAR= 'formatting-characters'

Syntax Description

'formatting-characters'

specifies any string or list of strings of characters up to 64 bytes long. If fewer than 64 bytes are specified, the string is padded with blanks on the right.

Tip:For consistent results when you move your document to different computers, issue the following OPTIONS statement before using ODS destinations other than the Listing destination:
options formchar"|----|+|---+=|-/\<>*";
