By default, the FACTEX procedure does not display any output. For each design that it constructs, the procedure displays a message in the SAS log that provides the following:

  • the number of runs in the design

  • the number of blocks and the block size, if appropriate

  • the maximum resolution of the design

The DESIGN option in the EXAMINE statement displays the coded runs in the design that uses standard values, as described in the section OUTPUT Statement. The CONFOUNDING option in this EXAMINE statement displays the confounding rules used to construct the design. The ALIAS option in this statement displays the aliasing structure for the design.

The FACTEX procedure also creates output data sets with the OUTPUT statement. Since the procedure is interactive, you can use many OUTPUT statements in a given run of the FACTEX procedure to produce many output data sets if you separate them with RUN statements.
