sasCommunity Tip of the Day

Use the bcolor and color style attributes in title and footnote statments to have solid lines created above and below your output, e.g.,

title h=5pt bcolor=blue ' ';
footnote h=5pt bcolor=blue ' ';

will create a solid blue line that is five points high at the top and bottom of each page of output. The above uses blue, but any valid SAS, RGB, or HLS color name can be used.
