We have recently moved our environment to a Windows setup and I am trying to make better use of the fonts that are available. I have been changing some of our annotate code over to use ARIAL, but I am trying to find some equivalants to some of the stlye options we used in out code like style='swissb' and style='swissi'. I have tried style='ARIAL/BOLD' and style='ARIAL/ITALIC' but they result in font substitution. How can I bold and italic the arial font in the style setting?

Any help would be much appreciated

There are many factors when dealing with fonts (which version of SAS you're using, which output device you're using, etc), but in general these arial fonts should work on a PC for you.

Without seeing the code or your annotate data set, my best guess would be that you are letting your 'style' variable auot-set to a length, and that length isn't long enough to hold these longer font names (you can do a "proc print" of the annotate data set to check this).

If that's the problem, you can fix it by assigning a longer length, such as ...

data my_anno;
length style $30;
/* remember - that's double-quotes inside single-quotes, or vice versa. */
