Renaming ODS body files

It's easy to generate multiple body files corresponding to BY groups. Just code NEWFILE=BYGROUP. However, these files will be distinguished only by automatically generated numeric suffixes. Their names will not reflect the values of the BY variables.

A workaround is to rename the files after they are created. Ray Pass demonstrated a way to do this in I'll Have the TABULATEs a la ODS Please, With a Table of Contents On the Side. Another example was posted on SAS-L by Peter Crawford. Note that this technique tends to be platform-specific.

It would be nice if SAS permitted the use of the #BYVAL token (as allowed in TITLE and FOOTNOTE statements) within BODY= specifications.
