Creating an Instructions sheet in report output

I run a daily report, and based on the entries in the report there are different instuctions on what to do.  I wanted to put an instructions sheet in the report to refer to.  How can I do that?

 

Thanks,

Elliott

You can use ODS TEXT to write text to the output destination.

Procs ODSTEXT and or ODSLIST, a bit different than ODS Text, might be a better joice for significant blocks of text. For one thing you can keep data in a data set and use that to generate output. So it may be possible to link data to your report data and customize the instrutions.

So the answer is it depends. There are methods of adding information to various places. If you use HTML maybe it's a tooltip. If it's something else, the options can vary. Basically you need to provide more information if you need more details.

Add instructions as text to a dataset. Proc Print/Report the dataset to ODS.
