The SAS support website has SAS hosted documentation and supplemental technical conference (SGF and SUGI) papers. I used the website SEARCH facility and found this conference paper which reference on using BREAK with the PAGE option.

Re: page break using proc report

Basically, PROC REPORT needs a GROUP or ORDER variable that represents the place where break processing should occur. So you can either create your own "fake" page break variable or you could use a BY statement (every BY group starts a new page) or you could use the obs= option, as shown in this forum posting:㵌
(this person wanted to suppress page numbers on the first page of the report, but the same OBS= and FIRSTOBS= technique would also work for what you want.
