ods pdf papersize depends on browser locale?

hi,

i have a stored process that generates a pdf that is streamed to the browser.

when i set my browser's locale to Dutch, the pdf is created with papersize A4.

when i set my browser's locale to US, the pdf is created with papersize letter.

2 questions:

1. i cannot find documentation describing this behavior. is there any?

2. how can i influence the papersize setting without having to change browser locale? options papersize=a4 doesn't work because sp deployment inserts %stpbegin before it causing it to not work. i can't / don't want to manually edit the stored process code after deploying it because i don't have the permissions to do that.

thanks already,

Bart

The documentation in my 9.2 install when looking at the index for NLS has a subtopic of locale that lists implicit items associated with locale. Also the same documentation says that if you explicitly set an option, such as papersize, that will override the implicit setting from locale. So setting

options papersize should work.

But I'm not sure about where that would go in relation to stored process. Possibly in whatever calls the process?

SAS(R) 9.2 National Language Support (NLS): Reference Guide ( specifying a Locale ) is telling:

DATESTYLE=    DFLANG=    ENCODING=   PAPERSIZE=     TRANTAB=

For the default values.

SAS(R) 9.2 National Language Support (NLS): Reference Guide ( LOCALE= Values and Default Settings for ENCODING, PAPERSIZE, DFLANG, and DATESTYLE options)
