Pretext and Posttext with ODS Excel

I am using proc report with ODS Excel.  I have applied a style to a summary row and attempted to use the pretext or posttext statement to add the word 'Grand Total' on the summary row, but it doesn't seem to work.  It does using ODS PDF, RTF, and HTML however.

Is this a bug with Excel?  Does a workaround exist for this?  Here's an example:

ods excel file="D:\test\Test.xlsx";
proc report data=sashelp.class;
columns Name Sex Age Height Weight Dummy;
define Name /"Name" group;
define Sex /"Sex" group;
define age /"Age" analysis sum;
define height /"Height" analysis sum;
define weight /"Weight" analysis sum;
define dummy /computed noprint;
RBREAK AFTER / SUMMARIZE;

compute dummy;
IF _break_='_RBREAK_' THEN CALL DEFINE('Name','style','style=[pretext="Grand Total" background=red]');
endcomp;

run;
ods excel close;





Thanks.

I think I was thinking abou this too hard.  I solved this with the following code:


ods excel file="C:\test\test.xlsx";
proc report data=sashelp.class;
columns Name Sex Age Height Weight Dummy;
define Name /"Name" group;
define Sex /"Sex" group;
define age /"Age" analysis sum;
define height /"Height" analysis sum;
define weight /"Weight" analysis sum;
define dummy /computed noprint;
RBREAK AFTER / SUMMARIZE;

compute dummy/char;
IF _break_='_RBREAK_' then Name="Total";
endcomp;

run;
ods excel close;
