Adding obbnote in Proc Document causes table to disappear from replay

I have a ODS Document that I've created to catch a lot of output (e.g. work.largedoc in example below), which needs to get parsed into several artifacts for documentation purposes (e.g. work.smalldoc in the example below) using the DOC statement in PROC DOCUMENT.  The following is a sample set of instructions I use to parse the large document into smaller ones.

 

proc document name=work.largedoc;
 doc name=work.smalldoc(write);

 make \work.smalldoc\Model1#1 / last;
 copy
  \work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\ParameterEstimates#1
, \work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\FitStatistics#1
 to \work.smalldoc\Model1#1 / last;
*other things copied to file;

 obtitle \work.smalldoc\Model1#1\ParameterEstimates#1 "Forecasts from Outcome Analysis";
 obbnote \work.smalldoc\Model1#1\ParameterEstimates#1 "Model using initial set of input variables";

doc close;
run;

 

If I don't add the OBBNOTE, the FitStatistics#1 table appears as expected when I use REPLAY within another PROC DOCUMENT call.  However, the FitStatistics#1 table goes missing is the OBBNOTE statement is used.

 

I'm trying to build a process that avoids needing secondary text processing, but I need to reference that Fit Statistics table, so I cannot afford for it to go missing.  What do I need to do to fix this?

It would help to provide an example using something with data we could use to duplicate the behavior such as the Proc Document examples us the SASHELP.Class data set and proc contents output.

Re: Adding obbnote in Proc Document causes table to disappear from replay

Here is code illustrating my problem:

 

ods graphics on;
ods document name=work.largedoc(write);
*Airline model example;
data work.airlocal(drop=i);
 format date date9.;
 set sashelp.air;
 t = _N_;
 lg_air = log(air);
 output;
 if _N_ eq 144 then do;
  do i = 1 to 24;
   date=intnx('month','31DEC1960'd,i,'end');
   t=144+i;
   air=.;
   lg_air=.;
   output;
  end;
 end;
run;
proc arima data=work.airlocal(
 rename=(
  air      = y
  lg_air   = lg_y
 )
);
 identify var=lg_y stationarity=(PP) crosscorr=(t);
 estimate input=(t) p=(1)(12) q=(12);
 forecast id=t lead=24 out=work.fcst;
run;
data work.fcst;
 set work.fcst;
 air     = exp(lg_y);
 air_f   = exp(forecast+0.5*STD**2);
 air_l95 = exp(l95);
 air_u95 = exp(u95);
run;
proc sgplot data=work.fcst;
 scatter x=t y=air ;
 series  x=t y=air_f;
 band    x=t lower=air_l95 upper=air_u95 / transparency=.80;
run;
ods document close;

proc document name=work.largedoc;
 list / levels=all details;
run;

*Selecting only the ARIMA parameter table and fit statistics table;
proc document name=work.largedoc;
 doc name=work.smalldoc(write);
 make \work.smalldoc\Fit#1;
 copy \work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\ParameterEstimates#1
     ,\work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\FitStatistics#1
 to \work.smalldoc\Fit#1 / last;
 doc close;
run;

*Both show in replay;
proc document name=work.smalldoc;
 replay;
run;

*OBBNOTE added and fit statistics table goes missing;
proc document name=work.smalldoc;
 obbnote \Fit#1\ParameterEstimates#1 "This note";
 replay;
run;

 

Why does adding an OBBNOTE hide the contents?

Using the above example code, this doesn't even work.

*Split the two tables into two separate directories;
proc document name=work.largedoc;
 doc name=work.smalldoc(write);
 make \work.smalldoc\PEST#1;
 copy \work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\ParameterEstimates#1
 to \work.smalldoc\PEST#1 / last;
 make \work.smalldoc\Fit#1;
 copy \work.largedoc\Arima#1\Estimate#1\FitStatistics#1
 to \work.smalldoc\Fit#1 / last;
 doc close;
run;

*Both appear as expected;
proc document name=work.smalldoc;
 replay;
run;

*Fit statistics table is missing, though the "The ARIMA Procedure" proctitle appears;
proc document name=work.smalldoc;
 obbnote \PEST#1\ParameterEstimates#1 "This note";
 replay \PEST#1;
 replay \Fit#1;
run;

 

I'm now at a loss.
