Optional Arguments

specifies the alignment of the object footer.
aligns the object footer with the left margin.
centers the object footer between the left and right margins.
aligns the object footer with the right margin.

Default:If you omit n, then SAS assumes a value of 1. Therefore, specify either OBANOTE or OBANOTE1 for the first text line.
Tips:The OBANOTE line with the highest number appears on the bottom line.

You can create notes that contain blank lines between them. For example, if you specify a text string with an OBANOTE1 statement that is followed by an OBANOTE3 statement, then a blank line separates the two lines of text.

specifies that a table containing the output object’s heading will be written to active destinations.
specifies the text string that becomes the object footer.
You can customize object footers by inserting BY variable values (#BYVALn), BY variable names (#BYVARn), or BY lines (#BYLINE) into object footers that are specified in PROC DOCUMENT steps. After you specify the object footer, embed the items at the position where you want them to appear. For more information, see Customizing Labels, Titles, and Footnotes with BY Variables .
Length:The maximum text length is 32000 characters.
Requirement:All text strings must be enclosed in quotation marks.
If no text string is specified, then the OBANOTE statement deletes all object footers for the specified output object only.
