Transparent EMF Export?

How can you export EMF files with a transparency. The SAS website says that when the image is imbedded it’s possible but I can’t seem to get it to work.

I’ll use this code

ods rtf file='C:\Users\XXXX\Desktop\SAS_DUMP\bank.rtf';ods graphics /outputfmt= emf;

proc sgrender template=smores data=usher,


ods rtf close;

and get this in my log statement.


1062  ods rtf file='C:\Users\DDao\Desktop\SAS_DUMP\bank.rtf';ods graphics /outputfmt= emf;

NOTE: Writing RTF Body file: C:\Users\DDao\Desktop\SAS_DUMP\bank.rtf

1063  proc sgrender template=smores data=usher;

1064  run;

NOTE: The graph will be rendered as an image due to the use of transparency.

NOTE: There were 77 observations read from the data set WORK.USHER.

NOTE: PROCEDURE SGRENDER used (Total process time):

      real time           0.57 seconds

      cpu time            0.31 seconds

1065  ods rtf close;

If you could help me solve this in any way  I would greatly appreciate it.
