SAS pdf

I know we usually use excel with the following code

PROC EXPORT DATA= work.scores
    OUTFILE= 'C:\excel files\class.xls'
    DBMS=EXCEL REPLACE;
     SHEET="class";
RUN;

I hope my report be nicer. So I want to use PDF. The problem is, when I continue to generate pdf files, how can i replace them. Does it have the function that it can have different pages that allow me to modify and replace? Plus, how to add password to the pdf file that I generate?

Thanks

Re: SAS pdf

Here's the SAS documenation on the ODS PDF destination. Also there are many SGF papers about ODS PDF at http://support.sas.com.

 

The ODS PDF destination, like all ODS destinations, always creates an entire document, It is not possible to modify an already-existing file. 

 

Concerning passwords on your PDF files, see the section "Securing ODS Generated PDF Files" here.

Re: SAS pdf

Thanks. Without a sample sas code, without an example, it is hard for me to do.

Plus, I saw

"You can set the PDFPASSWORD option at any time, but it is ignored until the PDFSECURITY system option is set to either LOW or HIGH. When the PDFSECURITY option is set to NONE, passwords for a PDF document are not needed."

 

Would you please provide sas code? or an example with code?

Thanks.
