The default behavior of table splitting in SAS pdf output for all procedures is first it outputs all variables (columns) and then observations (rows). For e.g if there is a table which is displayed in 4 pages of a pdf file which has 10 variables and 50 observations, then the first page will contain, say 6 variables and 30 observations, in first page. Then the second page will have remaining 4 variables and 30 observations, the third page will have 6 variables and 20 observations and last page will have 4 variables and 20 observation.

Instead of this how can we have output with observations (rows) first then variables (columns)? That is first page will have say 6 variables and 30 observations, second page will have have 6 variables and 20 observations, the third page will have remaining 4 variables and 30 observations and and last page will have 4 variables and 20 observations.

Hi:

I believe that you cannot change the way that ODS PDF splits wide tables. You can double check with Tech Support, they would know the definitive answer.
