Missing TITLE in ODS RTF output when using PROC SGPLOT

I'm having an issue with titles in my RTF output when I use PROC SGPLOT.

For example, the following code (which has been modified to protect the identities of innocent file paths):

filename test "rtf_title_test1.rtf"

ods rtf file = test bodytitle sasdate startpage = yes style = journal ;

title "Height by Weight" ;

proc sgplot data = sashelp.class ;

     xaxis type = linear ;

     series x = weight y = height ;

run ;

Works, except that there is no title in my output. I'm using SAS EG 4.3 and SAS 9.2. When I eneable the default EG RTF destination, rather than using ODS statements, the title appears. But with the ODS statement, it's gone.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jed

Check the header in your RTF file. By default, ODS RTF places the title in the header.

Re: Missing TITLE in ODS RTF output when using PROC SGPLOT

Hi:

  As Reeza mentioned, by default, ODS RTF places the SAS title in the header of the Word document. The exception to this rule is graph output, where the title is generally placed within the boundary of the image.

  I find it best to explicitly specify 1) where I want the titles to be placed for graph purposes -- either inside the image (GTITLE) or outside the image (NOGTITLE). And, then, once that decision is made, if I want the title INSIDE the image, then there's nothing for BODYTITLE to do. IF i want the title OUTSIDE the image, then using BODYTITLE with NOGTITLE will do what you want. When I ran this code in SAS 9.3, I got the results I think you want with #2 code. #1 code gives me the TITLE in the header of the RTF document. #3 and #4 code gives me the title inside the image boundary, where ODS cannot really touch it.

  The only problem is that I no longer have SAS 9.2 to test with. So if this code doesn't work for you in SAS 9.2, it might be because the NOGTITLE/GTITLE option was not implemented in ODS RTF until SAS 9.3 version. But I think that GTITLE/NOGTITLE was first implemented for HTML and RTF at the same time and implemented for PDF later.

  At any rate, if this code doesn't work for you then you might want to work with Tech Support for more help. Also, EG may only show you 3 of the 4 output files. You may have to open one of the output files using Word instead of the EG results tabs. EG doesn't show you all the results.

Hi Cynthia,

I think this also works the same for RTF files using SAS/GRAPH, like gplot.

Can you please confirm?

Thanks,

Charlie

Cynthia,

I'm currently running into the same issue with PDF using gplot....I tried you work around and does not work on PDFs. Please note that I am on SAS 9.2 for windows

Re: Missing TITLE in ODS RTF output when using PROC SGPLOT

Hi, as I explained over a year ago. I no longer have SAS 9.2 to test with. My recommendation is that you open a track with Tech Support. NOGTITLE/GTITLE was an option added to ODS PDF, but I am not sure when. Tech Support really is the place where you should ask this question, instead of adding a question onto a year old track.

Re: Missing TITLE in ODS RTF output when using PROC SGPLOT

I use proc sgpanel , following your method, but title or footnote can't be insect into RTF' heaer or footer. they are just displayed on the graphic's wall,  can you tell me why?

Is it because: PROC sgpanel don't belong to GTL ?

I think it depends on the ODS settings. Look into gtitle, and post your code if it doesn't work. 

You should also specify your version of SAS.

Please look at code example #1 in my posting of Feb 2013. You will need NOGTITLE to move the graph title OUTSIDE of the image.
