SAS Statements under Windows

FOOTNOTE Statement: Windows

Prints up to ten lines of text at the bottom of the procedure output.
Valid in: anywhere in a SAS program
Windows specifics: Maximum length of footnote
See: FOOTNOTE Statement in SAS Language Reference: Dictionary



FOOTNOTE <n> <'text' | "text">;


specifies the relative line to be occupied by the footnote.


specifies the text of the footnote in single or double quotation marks.


The FOOTNOTE statement takes effect when the step or RUN group with which it is associated executes. Once you specify a footnote for a line, SAS repeats the same footnote on all pages until you cancel or redefine the footnote for that line.

The maximum footnote length under Windows is 256 characters. If the specified footnote is greater than the LINESIZE system option, the footnote is truncated to the line size.
