Create underline at the bottom of each page.

Hello,

Can you please help me to create a line at the bottom of each page in the report? If you look at the output that is generated you will see that the line on the first page is fine because it's at the bottom of the page, however the line on the second page is not at the bottom of the page, the line starts directly when the report finishes. I'm also using RTF output because I need to select the data in each column after the output has been produced. This seems to work fine when I use proc printto, but I can't get it to work when I use ods RTF file. Thank you in advance for your help!

The code I used is below:

data exprev;
input Country $ 1-24 Emp_ID $ 25-32 Order_Date $  Ship_Date $  Sale_Type $ 67-75 Quantity Price Cost;

Re: Create underline at the bottom of each page.

Thank you Xia. Do you know how I can get this to work on outputs that are more than one page please, and also have the footer consistently on the bottom of the page?

Thank you.

Re: Create underline at the bottom of each page.

Thank you for this code Xia, this really helps! I also used some of the RTF control words so that a border (overline) was produced over the first footnote.

Such as

footnote1 "*R'\brdrt\brdrs\brdrw15\ql\li500\fi-500\par '"||trim(fnotes1);
