How to use unicode symbols in a Proc Report define title area

Hi,

 

Am trying to use a SymbolA character 2605'x (9733 dec) as a title in a proc report define statement.  Tried a few things searching on unicode but none have panned out so far.

 

define pct /display format=pct  ....;

 

I'm assuming it will be some variant of a style specification?

 

Thanks!

Is the formatted value what contains the unicode?

Then you may need to modify the format. Please show the code for the format if so.

Otherwise I do not see where you are attempting to use unicode.

 

And your format=pct. appears to be missing the period to end the format.

Ha. Should have continued looking:

 

define pct /display format=pct. '^{unicode ''2605''x}' color=blue;

 

generates a blue star.
