The POWER Procedure

ODS Table Names

PROC POWER assigns a name to each table that it creates. You can use these names to reference the table when using the Output Delivery System (ODS) to select tables and create output data sets. These names are listed in Table 68.28. For more information about ODS, see Chapter 20, Using the Output Delivery System.

Table 68.28 ODS Tables Produced by PROC POWER

ODS Table Name




Factoid with single-valued analysis parameters



All input and computed analysis parameters, error messages, and information messages for each scenario



Data contained in plots, including analysis parameters and indices identifying plot features. ( Note:This table is saved as a data set and not displayed in PROC POWER output.)


*Depends on input.

The ODS pathnames are created as follows:

  • Power.<analysis statement name>.FixedElements

  • Power.<analysis statement name>.Output

  • Power.<analysis statement name>.PlotContent

  • Power.<analysis statement name>.Plot


  • The Plot objects are the graphs.

  • The indexing the analysis statement name is used only if there is more than one instance.

  • The indexing the plots increases with every panel in every plot statement, resetting to 1 only at new analysis statements.
