Statistical Graphics Using ODS

Reverting to the Default Templates

Customized templates are stored in SASUSER.Templat or in some other template store that you create. The templates supplied by SAS are in the read-only template store SASHELP.Tmplmst. If you have modified any of the supplied templates and you want to use the original default templates, you can change your template search path as follows:

ods path sashelp.tmplmst(read) sasuser.templat(update);

This way the default templates are found first. Alternatively, you can save all of your customized templates in a user-defined template store (for example WORK.Mystore). To access these templates, you submit the following statement before running your analysis:

ods path mylib.mystore(update) sashelp.tmplmst(read);

When you are done, you can reset the default template search path as follows:

ods path reset;

This restores the template search path to its original state (sasuser.templat(update) sashelp.tmplmst(read)). You can also save your customized template as part of your SAS program. You can delete it from the SASUSER.Templat template store when you are done, as in the following statements:

proc template;
   delete Stat.REG.Graphics.ResidualPlot;

The following note is printed in the SAS log:

   NOTE: 'Stat.REG.Graphics.ResidualPlot' has been deleted from: SASUSER.TEMPLAT

You can run the following step to delete the entire SASUSER.Templat store of customized templates:

ods path sashelp.tmplmst(read);
proc datasets library=sasuser nolist;
   delete templat(memtype=itemstor);
ods path sasuser.templat(update) sashelp.tmplmst(read);
