ODS PDF - How to deal with blank page

Hi all,

I am using Proc Report and ODS PDF layout to create a PDF report, but some of pages followed by blank page. I have no idea what cause the blank page.

Here is a example of code I have...

ODS listing close;

goptions device=actximg;

ODS PDF File="\\..\..\..\...pdf";

ODS layout start;

ods region width= height= y= x= ;

Proc Report ;

.

.

.

Run;

Quit;

ODS layout end;

ODS PDF startpage=now;

Proc Report;

.

Run; Quit;

ODS PDF Close;

Re: ODS PDF - How to deal with blank page

One generic cause could be a STARTPAGE following a long table. The table could end near the bottom of a page and the end spaces afterward appear on a new page. A STARTPAGE in could then add a new page creating a blank.

Coupled with lots of unspecified layout controls and no data it is fairly hard to be more specific.
