ODS, Proc Document and Table of Contents

Hi All,

 

I've been having a play around with using ODS document / proc document etc. to produce some outputs with usable TOC's.

 

I've had a read of a good few papers and a bunch of stuff from all over the internet and I've managed to get stuff looking how I want it to in the odsdocument window, listing the various section and subsection headings etc.

The issue seems to be when I output to rtf / pdf generating a toc I end up with and additional line in the TOC for each table which just states 'Table 1'.  Looking at the rtf output I can see that this is coming from the rtf control characters embedded in the output as {tc "Table 1 " \f C \1 3}.  I'm at a loss (given my limited knowledge) as to where this is coming from.  

 

I'd be really grateful if anyone could suggest how to get around this.

 

Many thanks,

Simon

Hi:
Are you using PROC REPORT? There is usually an "extra" Table 1 node that you see in PROC REPORT output. There is a Tech Support note http://support.sas.com/kb/31/278.html about how to get rid of it. And a previous Forum posting about the same issue is here:

Hi Cynthia,

 

Thank you so much for your response.

 

Yes, I am using PROC REPORT.  I'd been using the contents = but I'd messed up my break statement, having played around with the ordering variables I had been using.

 

All seems to be working well now.

 

Thanks,

Simon
