Highlight Required Field

This may be a very simple question, but I'm only seeing where I can highlight the entire column.  I have a set of 10 fields on my output excel file.  When the user gets the file, I want to have only 4 of the 10 fields in the header row highlighted.  I don't want the entire column, I only need the header, for just these 4 fields highlighted.

 

I'm attaching a sample of what I want the output to look like. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Highlight Required Field

Since you didn't say how you are producing the output, or even what version of SAS you are using (Enterprise Guide, Base SAS, etc.), I'm going to break my own rule and guess ... even though when I guess based upon almost no information, I'm guessing wrong 90% of the time.

 

However, if you are using PROC REPORT, then you could do something like

 

define measuretext/display "Statistic" style(header)=[color=black background=yellow];

Now, can we have more information about what you are doing and how you are doing it?

Re: Highlight Required Field

This worked!

 

...for those that will use this as a reference, I'm doing a PROC REPORT in Enterprise Guide 9.4

 

Thanks for the quick reply!
