Footnote in Proc Sgplot


I am trying to insert in proc sgplot (in the png) file. I am placing footnote statement in the proc sgplot statements.

The footnote is coming up but I couldn't control the size. I tried height option but it is not working. How can you control the footonote attributes in the proc sgplot ?

Re: Footnote in Proc Sgplot

The height option must be before the text:

 

Footnote h=1pt 'Test 1' ;

 

not:

 

Footnote 'Test 1' h=1pt ;

Re: Footnote in Proc Sgplot

Did you put the height optoin before the text?

 

footnote h=20pt "A Footnote";

Proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;

vbar age;

run;

I tried that but it is not working. Here is the code. I tried placing at after ods layout and before as well but didn't work.

 


ods graphics / reset height=4.5in width=8.8in outputfmt=png imagename= "out";

options orientation=landscape;
ods pdf notoc nogtitle gfootnote dpi=&dpi
file="&output_name"
style= mystyle;

Footnote 'Test 1' h=1pt ;

ods layout start ;

proc sgplot data = lbs ;
format lbstresn tcfmt. ;

series x = weeks y = lbstresn / group = subjid groupms=subjid markers markerattrs=(size =4);
yaxis label = &lbl values =(&ticks) display = all;
xaxis values= (0 to 24 by 1 ) label = "Weeks" display = all ;
refline &valu4/ label = "LOQ = &valu3 " labelattrs = (size = 6) labelloc=inside;
keylegend / valueattrs = (size=6) title = 'Subjects' ;
run;

ods layout end;
ods graphics off;
ods pdf close;

I tried this option of putting height first but it is still not working. The footnote is appearing in the footnote but size

is not changing.

Never mind. I think this works. I had another footnote at the bottom which overwriting the first one.

Thanks you so much.

Re: Footnote in Proc Sgplot

Since we do not have your dataset you will have to explain exactly how it "is not working". No footnote appears? Appears in an unexpected place (often the bottom of a page not bottom of grapho or table).  Footnote appears but the height is not correct? Wrong font/color/ or other font characterisitc?

 

But as @DanH_sas said: The text MODIFIERS come before the TEXT.

Instead of

Footnote 'Test 1' h=1pt ;

 

it should be

 

Footnote  h=1pt  'Test 1';
