ODS RTF changes to specified table row

Hello,
I am working on a report with tables that need:
1)to have a solid line under the table header
2)to have a solid line over the last row of the table

I am writing to RTF.
I have accomplished #1 but need assistance with #2.
How do I make changes to a user-specified table row?
Thanks.

Re: ODS RTF changes to specified table row

I might be able to help, depending on how the table is being created. There are some non production rtf options that mgiht help, if the table is created with a "footer" section. that will depend on the proc being used.

If the table row is part of the body of the table, it gets very difficult.

ods rtf headerrulestyle="double" footerrulestyle="dotted" ;

is the syntax, but you may need to apply a style to get the effect you want.

My name is Wayne hester, feel free to e-mail at SAS on this if you need assistance.

Re: ODS RTF changes to specified table row

Hi Wayne,
I am using proc report to create the tables.
The table row is part of the body of the table.
I found some code from a SAS paper that uses the call define in a compute block and RTF tags to get the desired effect for the line under the second to last row of the table. Of course, it would be great to find a more efficient option that is easier to code. Perhaps in future SAS versions?
