ods rtf proc report "continued"

I'm using ods rtf proc report to create a table.

The table goes on for 3 pages.

Is there any way to add a note somewhere that says "continued on next page" for the 1st and 2nd pages of the table?

Thank you.

Hi:

  The original ODS RTF destination does not have "vertical measurement" -- so the page break is imposed by the word processor that opens the RTF file. With one set of margins, the number of report rows could be different than with another set of margins in the word processor.

  If you have SAS 9.2 or higher, you should consider switching to ODS TAGSETS.RTF -- the "Continued" when a table splits across pages is automatically put onto the report when you use this newer destination that first became available in SAS 9.2.

Is there any way to modify the text that appears (i.e. (Continued))?

Thank you.
