The BOXPLOT Procedure

ODS Graphics

Statistical procedures use ODS Graphics to create graphs as part of their output. ODS Graphics is described in detail in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

Before you create graphs, ODS Graphics must be enabled (for example, by specifying the ODS GRAPHICS ON statement). For more information about enabling and disabling ODS Graphics, see the section Enabling and Disabling ODS Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

The overall appearance of graphs is controlled by ODS styles. Styles and other aspects of using ODS Graphics are discussed in the section A Primer on ODS Statistical Graphics in Chapter 21: Statistical Graphics Using ODS.

The appearance of a box plot produced using ODS Graphics is determined by the style associated with the ODS destination where the graph is produced. PLOT statement options used to control the appearance of traditional high-resolution graphs are ignored for ODS Graphics output.

When producing ODS graphical displays, the PLOT statement assigns a name to each graph it creates. You can use this name to reference the graph when using ODS. The name is listed in Table 26.10.
