My work group is in the process of moving from a SAS 9.2 Unix System to a SAS 9.4 Unix System (AIX). When tables are run in the new system using the styles modified form the old for the additional 9.4 style elements, some rows in the tables (RTF) and occasionally the space immeidately below the table but above the footes is shaded. Why would this happen?
If your custom style built in SAS 9.2 used an inherit from a SAS style it is very likely that the underlying style changed a little or a lot. Much stuff was moved around in the Styles for SAS 9.3 related to colors and how they were set. So you may be seeing some inherited from the new base style that you did not overwrite or customize from the 9.2 version. Or considering how many of the SAS styles inherit from others the actual cause could be buried back a few levels.
I am assuming you re-ran the code to build the styles as the previous catalogs containing the styles weren't going to transfer in a useable manner without a fight.
You may want to try compaing the base 9.2 style definitions (hoping you still have access to a 9.2 install) to the 9.4. The LIST option with proc template will get you the text of the style.
