 Manipulating Statistical and Other Procedure Output to Get the Results That You Need

Vince DelGobbo, Senior Software Developer, Platform Research and Development, SAS

Many scientific and academic journals require that statistical tables be in a specific format (for example, the American Psychological Association style). This paper shows you how to change the output of any SAS« procedure to conform to any journal or corporate style. You'll learn how to save data from any SAS procedure, change the data format using the DATA step and dynamically create a format based on your data. You'll also use the SAS Output Delivery System (ODS) inline formatting functions and style overrides and produce several output formats, including HTML, RTF (for Microsoft Word), PDF and Microsoft Excel files. Finally, you'll learn how to create and deliver the output on demand using SAS server technology. This paper is appropriate for all SAS skill levels.

What's New in SAS« 9.4

Melodie Rush, Principal Systems Engineer, Customer Success Organization, SAS

Explore selected changes and enhancements in SAS 9.4, including a discussion of changes to common procedures.

SAS« Studio: An Introduction

Melodie Rush, Principal Systems Engineer, Customer Success Organization, SAS

This session introduces SAS Studio, a development application for SAS that you access through your web browser. With SAS Studio, you can access your data files, libraries and existing programs, and you can write new programs. You can also use the predefined tasks in SAS Studio to generate SAS code.

Combining Special Missing with Informat and Format Statements for Great Reports

Caroline Ledbetter, Center for Innovation Design and Analysis, Colorado School of Public Health

Learn how to combine SAS« special missings with informat and format statements to reduce information loss and make informative reports. Increase efficiency by learning how to automatically create great looking data dictionaries using the information already in SAS with the format library and ODS special escape characters.

Getting Started with ODS Graphics

Jud Blatchford, Research Associate, Colorado School of Public Health

SAS ODS Graphics is an extension of the SAS Output Delivery System (ODS) and is available to all SAS users as part of Base SAS software starting with SAS 9.3. Using ODS Graphics, graphs may be generated in different ways, namely, by using: 1) SAS analytical procedures, 2) statistical graphics (SG) procedures, 3) SAS ODS Graphics Designer, or 4) SAS Graph Template Language (GTL) syntax. This presentation will provide guidance on how to start using ODS Graphics and will illustrate how graphs may be generated using all 4 approaches.

Using the New ODS EXCEL Destination in SAS« 9.4 When Working with Remote Servers

Tom Bugg, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

The ODS EXCEL destination has made sharing SAS« reports and graphs much easier. What is even more exciting is that this destination is available for use regardless of the platform. This is extremely useful when reporting is performed on remote servers. This presentation goes through the basics of using the ODS EXCEL destination and shows specific examples of how to use this in a remote environment. Examples for both SAS« on Windows and in SAS« Enterprise Guide« are provided.
