ODS Graphics

Before you create ODS Graphics output, ODS Graphics must be enabled (for example, by using the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement). For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see the section Enabling and Disabling ODS Graphics in SAS/STAT 12.1 User's Guide.

The appearance of a graph produced with ODS Graphics is determined by the style associated with the ODS destination where the graph is produced. COMPHISTOGRAM options used to control the appearance of traditional graphics are ignored for ODS Graphics output.

When ODS Graphics is in effect, the COMPHISTOGRAM statement assigns a name to the graph it creates. You can use this name to reference the graph when using ODS. The name is listed in Table 5.17.
