subtitles and footnotes trouble in ODS powerpoint

[ Edited ]

Hi all-

 

 I am sending output from an SGPLOT procedure using BY grouping to ODS POWERPOINT.

 

 I would like each slide to have the title specified by a title statement, the subtitle specified by the title2 statement, and a footnote specified by the footnote statement. I am using #byvar references in the title2 and footnote statements. They work in the title2, but that appears only on the first page. The footnotes appear correctly in my SAS Report output in Enterprise Guide but don't resolve in Powerpoint.

 

I'm using SAS 9.4.3.

 

Here is my code:

 

ods powerpoint file = "cars2.pptx" ;
ods powerpoint layout = TitleAndContent (advance = bygroup) nogtitle nogfootnote ;
title 'MPG Scatterplot' ;
title2 'Split by #byvar1 #byvar2 #byvar3' ;
footnote '#byvar1 = #byval1 #byvar2 = #byval2 #byvar3 = #byval3' ;
proc sgplot data = sorted_cars noautolegend ;
     by   origin
          type
          make ;
     scatter   x = mpg_city
               y = mpg_highway / group = cylinders ;
run ;
ods powerpoint close ;

I tried various things, like turning (advance = bygroup) off and on, and turning gtitle and gfootnote off and on. The slides look the same no matter what I do.

 

I'm a bit stuck here.

 

Thanks!

 

Jed

Re: subtitles and footnotes trouble in ODS powerpoint

I think the layout template is doing more harm than good. Try this. For me it creates a PowerPoint document with 114 slides:

ods powerpoint file = "cars2.pptx" nogtitle nogfootnote;
title 'MPG Scatterplot' ;
title2 'Split by #byvar1 #byvar2 #byvar3' ;
footnote '#byvar1 = #byval1 #byvar2 = #byval2 #byvar3 = #byval3' ;
proc sgplot data = sorted_cars noautolegend ;
     by   origin
          type
          make ;
     scatter   x = mpg_city
               y = mpg_highway / group = cylinders ;
run ;
ods powerpoint close ;
