Hello,

I am facing problems with the pdf output with several graphs included. I have two databases, from each of them I create by macro loop set of 6 graphs. I would like to have first 6 graphs on the page 1, graphs from the second loop on the second page. The pdf output I currently obtain contains several attributes I would like to change.

 

My issues are as follows:

 

1) If I run the code for the first time, there are no titles of the pages. All the graphs have its own - loop-specific - title, but there is no header of the pdf page. If I run the code for the second time, there is a header on each pdf page with the values of &saz and &taf from the second loop. Why is it so and is there some simple way how to create page-specific header ?

 

2) The second issue concerns the bookmarks. Each graph has its own clickable bookmark created by the command ods proclabel. But is there a way how to have just one bookmark per pdf page, not six the same ones ? The secondary bookmarks are hidden by the

command pdftoc = 1. Is there a way how to remove them totally ?

 

3) Despite the fact the loop runs 2 times, there are 3 pdf pages created. It seems it is because of the command ods pdf startpage=now. Is there a way how to remove the blank page (either at the beginning of the document or at the end depending on the location of the ods command) ?

 

Thank you for any suggestions which way to correct the code.

hi

 

I have made some changes to your code, see below.

To have an overall title for the page, use a TITLE statement before starting the layout.

 

Close a layout at the end of the page.

 

You can use ODS PDF BOOKMARKGEN and NOBOOKMARKGEN to control whether bookmarks are created or not.

 

You can use the DESCRIPTION option on Proc SGPLOT to control the text of the second level bookmark.
