I am creating an RTF file through ODS and PROC REPORT, and I am noticing that 1 or 2 blank lines are being placed between the table and the footnotes. I can remove these lines in the file (post-processing), but I was wondering if there is a way to control this within the SAS code. Here is an example of the code that I am using. The style is a modified version of the Journal style template. If a part of the style template controls this spacing, please let me know:
I think the amount of space that is used to separate the footnote from the table is 2 spaces when you use BODYTITLE, (same as when you use STARTPAGE). In the future, there will be a way to decrease this amount of space -- either through the measured RTF destination (in 9.2) or with a style element, as described here:
Thanks for your response! I was afraid that this version did not have the capability, because I tried so many things, and none of them gave me the result I needed. Oh well, we'll keep the post-processing for now, until the next version.
