Output Delivery System (ODS) and Data Visualization Essentials using SAS
The traditional SAS output has limitations that can make it difficult to derive the most value from your data. Output Delivery Systems (OSD) removes those limitations by enabling the creation of reports in HTML, PDF, Microsoft Excel, or other formats. These reports can be customized with colors, fonts, graphics, and styles to create dynamic, engaging presentations.
This course teaches students to leverage ODS to create high-quality reports, while providing a better understanding of the statements, parameters, and options required to deliver the desired output. The topics incorporate DATA and PROC step programming techniques into hands-on projects creating outputs in RFT, PDF, HTML, and Excel.
- Selecting output objects with selection or exclusion lists
- Using SAS-supplied formatting statements, options, and styles
- Formatting output as RTF and PDF
- Formatting output as HTML
- Sending output to Microsoft Excel and Word
- Using ODS graphics statement options
- Constructing drill-down applications
- Use ODS to create SAS output in RTF, PDF, HTML, and Excel formats
