carriage return within a variable - help PLEASE

I'm trying to create an Adverse Event variable that is a concatonation of the AE term, the Preferred term, and The SOC term, but I want a carriage-return with an indent for each of the terms.

For example, I want it to look like this the in the PROC REPORT:

Adverse Event

__________________________

AETERM

  PTTERM

     SOCTERM

I think something like the following will work:

if (aeterm ne ' ') then aeevent  =  trim(aeterm)          ||

                                      '|R"\par\li250 "'  ||

                                      trim(ptterm)       ||

                                      '|R"\par\b0\li500 "' ||

                                      trim(socterm) ;

But I only get this, for examplernrn:

URI|R"\par\li250 "UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTION|R"\par\b0\li500 "INFECTIONS AND INFESTATIONS

PLEASE HELP

Use ODS escapechar , if You like.

ods escapechar='~';

if (aeterm ne ' ') then aeevent  =  trim(aeterm)          ||

                                     '~n~_~_'  ||

                                      trim(ptterm)       ||

                                      '~n~_~_~_~_'   ||

                                      trim(socterm) ;
