Odd Spacing in Graph Titles

I’ve seen a lot permutations for titles with odd spacing in SAS graphics.  The current one that I am trying to work around is for SGPanel.

I am creating a dynamic title that ends up displayed as

     Trend in Fall Enrollment Headcounnt for

By Location         then Gender

title1 "Trend in &term Enrollment Headcount for &prefixLong";

  title2 "by &reportTyName1 then &reportTyName2";

  proc sgpanel data=enrollment;

  panelby &reportTy1 &reportTy2/ layout=lattice uniscale=column  novarname  columns=3;

  vbar academic_period_desc / response=students_enrolled datalabel /*group=&enrRepTyRank*/ /*legendlabel=none*/ nostatlabel legendlabel=' ';

  rowaxis display=(nolabel);

  colaxis display=(nolable);

  /*title  "Trend in &term Enrollment Headcount for&prefixLong by &reportTyName1 then &reportTyName2";

I also tried using the title command in the sgpanel.

*/

  run;

When I use it with a tabulate statement the title shows up correctly.

title1 "Trend in &term Enrollment Headcount for &prefixLong";

  title2 "by &reportTyName1 then &reportTyName2";

  PROC TABULATE missing FORMAT=COMMA8.

  data=enrollment;

  &whereClause;

  class &reportTy1 &reportTy2 academic_period_desc;

  var STUDENTS_ENROLLED;

  TABLES &reportTy1=' ' * (&reportTy2=' ' all= 'Sub-total') all='Total',

  academic_period_desc=' '*Students_Enrolled=' '*sum=' '  /row=float;

  KEYLABEL n=' ' Sum= ' ';

  run;

Since the spacing is not off in one case and is in the other I know that I do not have extra spaces in my variables.

Re: Odd Spacing in Graph Titles

I recalled that this was answered in another post.  Sorry for posting the same question
twice.  When using an insert into
statement in SAS 9.2 you have to use the separated by ‘ ‘ in the proc sql
statement.

Re: Odd Spacing in Graph Titles

Please describe how the "spacing is off", preferably a posted graphic. Destination?

And I believe you are using SAS 9.3, is that correct?
