I have the output of my PROC TABULATE going to a PDF. I am able to apply any of the pre-defined SAS color names with any difficulty, however I would like to apply a custom color using the RGB color codes, for example CX31849B (link to SAS documentation: https://v8doc.sas.com/sashtml/gref/zgscheme.htm).
I use PROC FORMAT to define colors to cells, such as "red". This works fine, but when I use something like CX31849B, I get nothing but greyscale.

Without code or data, it is hard to make more than a guess, but using PROC TABULATE without a user-defined format, I was able to get this which does appear to be the right color.
but, even with a user-defined format it still works for me -- see the row header area for the classlev values for the SEX variable:

Show the code of the Format and the proc tabulate code you are using.
Also Version 8 documentation is a tad old and unless you are using SAS 8 (which is like 12 years out of date) to use version 9 documentation.
