I am creating a pdf report with the first page displays just the logo and few titles and from 2nd page displays compare report . The first page looks fine but 2nd page starts with a very 1st line as "Continuing contents of page 1, which would not fit on a single physical page". Why do I get this line when there is not much content in the 1st page?
Also the entire report has a grey background when printed. How to changes this to either "no color" or white background?
Any help would be appreciated.
What version of SAS are you using (SAS 9.1.3 or SAS 9.2)?? It would also be useful if you could post the code that you're using -- the ODS PDF code and the procedure code to create the title page and the other pages??? Are you using any "pre-production" features such as ODS LAYOUT?? Do you have any margin settings or orientation settings in an OPTIONS statement??
Usually, the PDF output has a white background when the default PRINTER style is used for ODS PDF. Does your ODS PDF invocation have a STYLE= option, and if so, what is the style that you're using???
(Hit Post instead of Preview on previous posting...sorry 'bout that)
One issue with your code is that you have parent=styles.default, which by default has a gray background. If you inherited from STYLES.PRINTER instead, you would automatically get a white background.
A big difference between STYLES.PRINTER and STYLES.DEFAULT is that STYLES.DEFAULT was -designed- primarily for HTML output. STYLES.PRINTER, on the other hand was -designed- to be the style template used by default for ODS PDF (and other PRINTER-family destinations [like PS, PCL, etc]).
If you look at STYLES.PRINTER, you will see that it ALSO inherits from STYLES.DEFAULT, however, it has many, many more changes than just a change to the FONT section. So if you want to get the ENTIRE look and feel of what was originally designed for the PRINTER destinations, then you should have parent=styles.printer ... or just cut and paste the whole, existing STYLES.PRINTER template into your editor window and change the font section (in which case, the parent would be STYLES.DEFAULT, but all the rest of the changes would be as designed for PDF).
So, that should take care of your gray background problem.
Your other issue, of why you are getting that "Continuing" message probably has something to do with ODS LAYOUT and the difference between the calculated physical page size and the logical page size. Since ODS LAYOUT is pre-production and has changed between 9.1.3 and 9.2, you might not find the exact answer you want in this paper, but it's a good place to start: http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings10/011-2010.pdf
Otherwise, your best resource for ODS LAYOUT issues/difficulties is to work with Tech Support on this part of your question.
Is it possible to restore stles.deafult under sashelp.tmplmst?? I was trying some changes & by mistake I made it to store at sashelp.tmplmst. I want the original styles.default features which is now changed permanently. Any help???
