Calcite | Level 5


In Ods html, I create a cover page containing an image referenced in the title statement of a dummy proc report:

data ;


proc report data=_last_  nowd headline Noheader SPLIT='*'   style(report)=[rules=all cellspacing=0 bordercolor=white] ;;

column x;define _all_/noprint;

     title1 color=CX262A2A  <IMG SRC="../Cover.png"  width="1000"    >;

     title3  color=Navy   h=13 font="Arial" "2013 Financial report";

How can I make "2013 Financial report" (Title3) to appear into the image at definite coordinates and not below it?

I suppose that the proc report method is not the right one for achieving that

Many thanks for your input

For a SAS/Graph solution, I would recommend using Proc Gslide with an iback (background image), such as the following.  (The line-spacing (ls) option controls how much space above the title text.)

goptions iback="U:\foo.png";

proc gslide;

title1 ls=20 "2013 Financial Report";

Thanks for the interesting approach, but I meet 2 problems:

1. The resolution of the picture is very low

2. The image repeats itself partly at its rigth

Any idea?

For the picture quality, you'll want to make sure you're using SAS 9.2 or higher, and using device=png.  Here are some details on the 'why' Robert Allison's Favorites of What's New in V9.2 SAS/Graph...

You'll also want to make sure that the gslide is approximately the same size & proportions as the image you're displaying in the background (of vice-versa).  You can change the size and proportions of your gslide by using goptions xpixels and ypixels, for example.

To have the image only repeat once, you can use  goptions imagestyle=fit
