SAS Warning RWI

Hi,

 

I am getting a Warning on trying to output my RWI program to RTF. The program seems to run correctly and file looks okay too, but just want to be sure that I am not missing anything. The warning says:

 

ODS Report Writing Interface is not supported for RTF destination. Results may be unpredictable.

 

Thanks.

Hi:
A warning is not an error. It is telling you exactly the same thing that Tim_SAS explained. The RWI interface is not supported for the RTF destination. If you want to get rid of the warning, switch to HTML or PDF, which are the 2 supported destinations for the RWI.

Re: SAS Warning RWI

The warning is accurate. The RTF spec does not allow some RWI functionality, notably nested tables. If you're happy with your results then fine, but you're using it at your own risk.

Re: SAS Warning RWI

I am happy with the results, but not comfortable with the warnings, is
there any other approach to strike middle ground?

Thanks,
Neha.
