You can use contents=yes with ODS PDF to get a separate contents page, but the format of the contents page cannot be formatted as you show.

That would be the simplest way to get a Table of Contents. Otherwise, if you need a highly customized cover page, you would have to use techniques similar to those shown in the answer to your previous post: which shows a PROC REPORT solution.

Also, this is probably not the correct forum in which to post your question. I don't see any graph code in your previous examples, so this might be better posted in the ODS and Reporting Forum.

Please try this code to see how contents=yes works with ODS PDF.




options pageno=1 nodate number;
ods pdf file='c:\temp\withcontents.pdf' contents=yes;
ods proclabel 'Show Students';
proc print data=sashelp.class contents='Print Names';

ods proclabel 'Descriptive Statistics';
proc means data=sashelp.class;
class age;
var height;

ods proclabel 'Counts for AGE and SEX';
proc freq data=sashelp.class;
  tables age sex;

ods proclabel 'Percentiles';
ods select percentiles;
proc univariate data=sashelp.class;
var height;

ods proclabel 'CrossTab Report';
proc tabulate data=sashelp.class contents='SASHELP.CLASS';
  class age sex;
  var height;
  table sex*age all,
        height*(min mean median max)/ contents='Sex and Age Table';
ods pdf close;

Note how ODS PROCLABEL and the procedure level CONTENTS= option alters the text that is shown in the Contents page:
