Controlling ODS output

I want to change the left and right margins in the pdf files I am outputting.  Actually, the real problem is that each obs requires more than one line, so I thought I would start with the orientation and margin width.  I would welcome suggestions for any other options that would allow me to output one record per line.

partial code:

%macro elemREP (num=);

ods pdf body="G:\Departments\Research\Misc\EVAAS\1415\School Rosters\&num._Verify_Roster_EVAAS.pdf";

options orientation=landscape nodate pageno=1 leftmargin=.1 rightmargin=.1;

proc print data=joinelem4 noobs;

You can change paper size by it :

options papersize=(10in 4in);

Re: Controlling ODS output

Whilst you may get some extra width by changing to landscape and shrinking the borders, and also reducing font size, the paper is at the end of the day only so big.  You may want to consider processing your dataset and splitting things out, maybe create additional rows for long strings, combine variables etc.
