SAS ods pdf - no image


I am creating a sas ods pdf with proc report. Below is the code for the same. I am unable to get the logo in the file. I have tried doing the research on forum but i could not find any.

The error message i get is "Unabe to load image. default image will be loaded instead". I just need to display company logo on top left.
Please someone help.

I believe you are experiencing this issue:

Which is an interaction between the use of the {lastpage} ESCAPECHAR function with an image. I believe the only workaround is to remove the use of {lastpage} from the code.

Thanks Cynthia. Thats exactly what i also noticed. When i removed this piece i can see the logo. But then i am losing out on page no part. I want to display "Page x of page y" at the bottom as second footer. I found couple of macros but that dint work out in pdf. Do you know of any technique?

Thansk again !!!

The only way that I can think of would be to use ODS LAYOUT (which is still pre-production) in SAS 9.2 -- however, I don't know whether ODS LAYOUT and ODS ESCAPECHAR will work as expected while the facility is pre-production. You may want to open a track with Tech Support to find out for sure.

A workaround way is to use ODS RTF,then transform it to pdf.
