Hi, 

 

Which version you are using...??

 

If you are using VA - 7.3...

 

I didn't seen any issue in VA - 7.3, By default it'll show report printed date, time and author name.

 

If your client/user need current date as a Tiltle/Sub tiltle you have to add Current Date(Datepart(now()) in every section.

 

I don't think so.... because In PDF you'll get date, time and author name.

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Teja Surapaneni.

I believe you can create a new variable as current date in SAS VA. What you can do is go to Data -> New Calculated Item. Under the operator, use the now() function.

Re: how to add current date to VA report

Is this also worked for SAS VA 7.1? 

I have created a calculated item using the now() function and placed it inside a Text box on top of each report section. However, this doesn't seem to work? 

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
