ODS PDF: Writing to document properties

Since I have deadlines, I have not properly searched for possible answers to this question.

 

Is it possible to write to the document properties of a PDF file using the SAS System?  For instance, I would like to add the path and name of the file that created the PDF and the data set(s) it used to the Decription property that one can view using Cntl-D in Adobe Acrobat (misusing the keyword field, I guess).  This issue is that that should be tracked, but the client has requested it not be including as text in the output (title/footnote).

 

Thank you,

 

Kevin

Re: ODS PDF: Writing to document properties

Hi:
As I remember ODS PDF has author= and has some other options that you can specify. I think you'll find them all here: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/odsug/67921/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0mc4eolqoned0n16oy8... -- where I see AUTHOR=, SUBJECT= and TITLE= which all get placed in the document metadata for ODS PDF.
