I'm helping a colleague with an issue they are having with having SAS create the proper page breaks for a text file.
They are opening the text file in Microsoft Word and the data crosses pages.
What is the best way to approach this issue to where each set of data is on a separate page? I started to look at creating the report with data _null_ and use the _page_ in a put statement but that doesn't split it correctly. Should I use the pagesize option? If so what should the value be?
How to handle over lapping of data on multiple pages?
Thank you for any help you can give me.put

Are you just dumping the data or are you generating a report (using PROC PRINT or PROC REPORT)?
If you want to generate a WORD file then look at ODS RTF or similar functionality to generate a file that is already formatted for WORD.
