Adding PDF bookmarks without procedures

[ Edited ]

 

option nodate nonumber;
ods pdf file = "&path./my_report.pdf" nogtitle dpi=600;
ODS PDF PDFTOC=1;
ods escapechar='~';

title;
footnotes;

ODS PDF STARTPAGE=now;
*----- add a bookmark here ----;

/* add text and images for this section independent of a procedure */
ods text='~S={preimage="&ci_png./lfirst_image.png"}';
ods text = "section text";

ODS PDF Startpage = now;
*----- add another bookmark here ----; /* 
ods text='~S={preimage="&ci_png./second_image.png"}';
ods text = "section text";

 I'm trying to use sas to create a pdf with a series of previously created png files and add bookmarks
at desired points. I've looked extensively for a way to do this, but I only found ods proclabel statement.
UUnfortunately, ods proclabel only works if you run a procedure afterwards, such as proc report or proc freq.
In my case, I don't need outputs of any procedure in this section. I simply want to add a bookmark.
Is there another statement I can use to do this? Or maybe a way to use a proc report or proc document
but outputting any extra items to the pdf?

Re: Adding PDF bookmarks without procedures

Hi:
You are on the right track with ODS DOCUMENT and PROC DOCUMENT. The way to organize your output with the levels of bookmarks that you want. There are some previous postings about ODS DOCUMENT and PROC DOCUMENT, as well as user group papers and at least one book a by SAS user.
