I am using proc report to produce a PDF output.
I would like to insert a minus sign, not a dash, in a title.
What hex code should I use?

Thanks,

Masoud

Suggested Google search argument might be:

ascii code +"minus sign"

Sorry for late response as I've been on vacation.  The best way in ODS PDF is to use the UNICODE inline function.  To find the minus symbol you need to bring up the character map (on windows) to see all the available glyphs for a certain font.  For example.... the minus sign is '002D' in Arial.

In your SAS code you could do this ... Title 'Here is a minus sign ^{unicode 002D}';  ** don't forget to set your escapechar first **

Hope this helps!
