Remove ODS PDF Bookmarks

Hello, I am trying to move two tables created by a PROC TABULATE statement onto one page of a PDF.  I was able to do so using startpage = never and ods pdf startpage=now to control the page placement, however it doesn't remove the PDF bookmark for the table I move onto the first page.  The best I can do is set it to be a blank label using ods proclabel ' '.  Is there a way to completely remove this bookmark?  I've tried using PROC DOCUMENT as well but can't seem to get it to work.  Thanks!_pd

Yes, you are correct. NOTOC was the -first- bookmark control. BOOKMARKGEN, in conjunction with BOOKMARKLIST was introduced later (9.0 or 9.1?) to give you a bit more control than plain NOTOC. For example, you can set BOOKMARKGEN=YES but then choose to hide the bookmark area with BOOKMARKLIST=HIDE. So on the initial open of the PDF file, the viewer will not see the bookmark area, but they can click the bookmark icon to reveal the TOC.

Hi:  A simple way to completely remove the bookmarks is to use NOTOC or BOOKMARKGEN=NO as options. Would that work for you?

ods listing close;

ods pdf file="C:\Temp\nobookmark.pdf" startpage=no bookmarkgen=no;

. . . your code. . .

ods pdf close;

BOOKMARKGEN worked perfectly, I want to keep the bookmarks, just suppress the blank ones created by moving the PROC TABULATE output.  I put a BOOKMARKGEN = NO before the PROC TABULATE statement that I move, then a BOOKMARKGEN = YES after it restart the bookmark generation.  Thanks!
