Time & Location
Oct 11, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT
Is everything about your SAS® output the way you want, except for the final order of the report objects? Do you want your output organized by year or by city, instead of by SAS procedure, without using SAS macro programs? Do you like the order that SAS produces, but you just want to change the folder hierarchy?
This paper illustrates how to capture your output and save it in an ODS document store. Then, you can create custom folders and a custom folder hierarchy using ODS DOCUMENT and PROC DOCUMENT to rearrange and replay your output. Along the way, you learn how to add custom titles and notes to your output; delete page breaks; label and rename folders; and use PROC DOCUMENT syntax to automate the creation of reports in the format you want. The ODS DOCUMENT window is demonstrated, along with PROC DOCUMENT. Concrete examples are used to illustrate every major task. The final report includes a Table of Contents that showcases the new report structure.
