to get alpha and beta Symbols in SDD (SAS Drug Development)

Dear All,

This is with regard to my query to get the alpha and beta symbols displayed in the RTF file from the code executed in SDD.

I used the below code to get the symbols in the RTF file, the code below will generate the RTF and displays the symbols in the sas version 9.2 on windows without any problem. The alpha and beta symbols codes are in the macro variables.

When the same code is executed in SDD (SAS Drug Development), the alpha and beta symbols are not getting resolved. instead of the symbols it displays ^{unicode 03B1} and ^{unicode 03B2}.

Could anyone please let me know the reason for the this not working in SDD and how i can make this work in SDD or if any other suggestion.

ods escapechar="^";

%let alpha = ^{unicode 03B1};

%let beta = ^{unicode 03B2};

data have;

    length x y $ 20;

    x="&alpha";

    y="&beta";

run;

ods listing close;

ods rtf file="~path\report.rtf";

proc report data = have nowindows;

    title &alpha β

    define x/"name &alpha" width=20;

    define y/"name &beta" width=20;

    footnote "symbol=&alpha and &beta";

run;

ods rtf close;

ods listing;

Thanks,
