Only One footnote

I am using SAS 9.2.


I am attempting to add a page footer to a stored procedure with multiple panels. 

When I call the footnote at the top of my stored procedure it displays once every time I have a different section. E.g. Each graph or htmlpanel.

Is there a setting to only have a footnote appear at the end of the stored procedure?

The line of code I am using is

footnote j=l height=1.00 font=Helvetica 'Enrollment Overview ';

Do I have to do this in html?

The behavior for footnotes (and titles) is for each procedure call the active title and footnote is displayed. So you may need to clear your footnote before some of the procedures with a Footnote; and then add it when you want it later.

The persistence is a useful feature when understood properly but can be a bit of a headache while learning.

If you only want this text in a specific location in your output you may want to investigate ODS text.
