Text object available for full text viewing. But it would be static. As far as I know there is no option to create a full text to show summarized value, provided the value is dynamic and must update automatically.

I want to display value like this, where the strings are typed text and the numeric figured are from source.
Can I achieve this in SAS VA Designer (Reporting)?
Total Weight (Kg): 2578
Docs Weight: 578
Non Docs Weight: 2000

There are currently no easy way on achieving this.
However if you use "precision" design, you can position a text element next to a small list table without headers. Depending on how data is structured you would need three list tables, "Docs Weight" and "Non Docs Weight" should have a filter do subset it correctly.
I have done similar multiple times. It is more tedious compared to "side by side" layout, but I think the end result is better and you get more flexibility.
Hope it can help you achieve what you need.

A SAS Visual Analytics report layout can be changed in the section property as documented at SAS(R) Visual Analytics 6.3: User's Guide
The default layout of a report is tiled.

To get VA to render the way you want it to, you will need to prep the data to include total, docs weight and non-docs weight then add one list table and follow Rune@sas instructions. Preparing the data to show summary details outside of VA you can also add additional filtering capabilities (i.e. if you have specific product names you can sumarize by product name and include a drop-down list filter to show summary data by product). With only one list table you can avoid the need to constantly adjust each of the list tables anytime and instead just adjust one.
I have also done this multiple times and it resonates with the business side.

Yes, happy to see you got what you needed, Raji! Can you mark appropriate answers as "correct" or "helpful" so other community members can easily reference what worked?
