Title box option does not work in ods pdf

Hi,

I wanted a proc report output where the title of the report needs to be in a box. When i tried using the box option in title statement, it does not seem to be working. Below is the code that i used:

ods pdf file="~/pen_demo.pdf" notoc;

title1 box=1 'test';

proc report data=sashelp.class nowindows ;

columns

_all_;

run;

ods pdf close;

Any help to have a box around the title would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks,

This is one of those times where Graph and ODS don't share syntax.  BOX=1..4 is more for GRAPH titles.  But we can do what you want in version 9.2 and later with individual border control. You can set a width and a color for the top|bottom|right|left of the title.  Try this code and see if it helps your situation :

ods escapechar='^';

ods pdf file="pen_demo.pdf" notoc;

title1 '^{style [bordertopcolor=green bordertopwidth=1pt borderbottomcolor=green borderbottomwidth=1pt borderrightcolor=green borderrightwidth=1pt borderleftcolor=green borderleftwidth=1pt] box this text}';

proc report data=sashelp.class nowindows ;

columns _all_;

run;

ods pdf close;

Hope this helps!
Scott
