Hello!

I am trying to put horizontal lines between subject identifiers in a RTF output and the following comes close:

compute before subjid / style={bordertopcolor=black bordertopwidth=3};

     line '';

endcomp;

However, I want a solution that does not create an extra blank line inserted as this creates too much white space.  Thanks in advance.

Hi:

  Without seeing all your code or the style that you are using, it is hard to guess what the rest of your code looks like. But do you want something like the cyan-colored lines in the attached screenshot?

  If so, instead of doing a COMPUTE before, try just using a COMPUTE for SUBJID with a CALL DEFINE statement to change the _ROW_ style attributes, as shown in the test code below.

data test;
  set sashelp.class;
  subjid=catt(sex,age);
run;
title; footnote;
   
ods rtf file='c:\temp\bordertest.rtf' style=journal;
proc report data=test nowd;
  column subjid name height weight;
  define subjid / group ;
  define name / order;
  define height / sum;
  define weight / sum;
  compute subjid ;
       if subjid gt ' ' then
       call define(_row_,'style',
                  'style={bordertopcolor=cyan bordertopwidth=3}');
  endcomp;
run;
ods rtf close;
