You can use ODS statements, the DATA step, and PROC TEMPLATE to modify the appearance of your displayed tables or to display results in forms that are not directly produced by any procedure. The following example, similar to that given in Olinger and Tobias (1998), runs an analysis with PROC GLM. This example has several parts. It creates output data sets with the ODS OUTPUT statement, combines and manipulates those data sets, displays the results by using a standard SAS template, modifies a template by using PROC TEMPLATE, and displays the output data sets by using the modified template. Each step works toward the final goal of taking multiple tables and creating a custom display of those tables in a way that cannot be done directly by PROC GLM.
The following statements create a SAS data set named Histamine
that contains the experimental data:
title1 'Histamine Study'; data Histamine; input Drug $12. Depleted $ hist0 hist1 hist3 hist5; logHist0 = log(hist0); logHist1 = log(Hist1); logHist3 = log(hist3); logHist5 = log(Hist5); datalines; Morphine N .04 .20 .10 .08 Morphine N .02 .06 .02 .02 Morphine N .07 1.40 .48 .24 Morphine N .17 .57 .35 .24 Morphine Y .10 .09 .13 .14 Morphine Y .07 .07 .06 .07 Morphine Y .05 .07 .06 .07 Trimethaphan N .03 .62 .31 .22 Trimethaphan N .03 1.05 .73 .60 Trimethaphan N .07 .83 1.07 .80 Trimethaphan N .09 3.13 2.06 1.23 Trimethaphan Y .10 .09 .09 .08 Trimethaphan Y .08 .09 .09 .10 Trimethaphan Y .13 .10 .12 .12 Trimethaphan Y .06 .05 .05 .05 ;
The data set comes from a preclinical drug experiment (Cole and Grizzle, 1966). In order to study the effect of two different drugs on histamine levels in the blood, researchers administer the drugs to 13 animals and measure the levels of histamine in the animals’ blood after 0, 1, 3, and 5 minutes. The response variable is the logarithm of the histamine level.
In the analysis that follows, PROC GLM is used to perform a repeated measures analysis, naming the drug and depletion status as between-subject factors in the MODEL statement and naming post-administration measurement time as the within-subject factor. For more information about this study and its analysis, see Example 42.7 in Chapter 42: The GLM Procedure.
The following PROC GLM statements begin the analysis:
ods graphics off; ods trace output; proc glm data=Histamine; class Drug Depleted; model LogHist0--LogHist5 = Drug Depleted Drug*Depleted / nouni; repeated Time 4 (0 1 3 5) polynomial / summary printe; run; quit;
The portion of the trace output that contains the fully qualified name paths is shown next:
Path: GLM.Data.ClassLevels Path: GLM.Data.NObs Path: GLM.Repeated.RepeatedLevelInfo Path: GLM.Repeated.PartialCorr Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Error.ErrorSSCP Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Error.PartialCorr Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Error.Sphericity Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Drug.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Depleted.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Drug_Depleted.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.BetweenSubjects.ModelANOVA Path: GLM.Repeated.WithinSubject.ModelANOVA Path: GLM.Repeated.WithinSubject.Epsilons Path: GLM.Repeated.Summary.Time_1.ModelANOVA Path: GLM.Repeated.Summary.Time_2.ModelANOVA Path: GLM.Repeated.Summary.Time_3.ModelANOVA
The goal here is to output the within-subjects multivariate statistics and the between-subjects ANOVA table to SAS data sets for use in subsequent steps. The following statements run the analysis and save the desired results to output data sets:
ods select none; proc glm data=Histamine; class Drug Depleted; model LogHist0--LogHist5 = Drug Depleted Drug*Depleted / nouni; repeated Time 4 (0 1 3 5) polynomial / summary printe; ods output MultStat = HistWithin BetweenSubjects.ModelANOVA = HistBetween; run; quit; ods select all;
No output is displayed due to the ODS SELECT statements. The ODS OUTPUT statement creates two SAS data sets, named HistWithin
and HistBetween
, from the two ODS tables. This analysis creates the following tables:
Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Drug.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Depleted.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.MANOVA.Model.Time_Drug_Depleted.MultStat Path: GLM.Repeated.BetweenSubjects.ModelANOVA
Here is the full trace output for the model ANOVA table:
Output Added: ------------- Name: ModelANOVA Label: Type III Model ANOVA Template: stat.GLM.Tests Path: GLM.Repeated.BetweenSubjects.ModelANOVA -------------
All of the multivariate test results are routed to the HistWithin
data set because all multivariate test tables are named MultStat, even though they occur in different directories in the
output directory hierarchy. Only the between-subject ANOVA table appears in the HistBetween
data set, even though there are also other tables named ModelANOVA. ODS selects just the one specific table for the HistBetween
data set because of the partial name path (BetweenSubjects.ModelANOVA
) in the second specification. For more information about names and qualified path names, see the discussion in the section
The ODS Statement.
The following statements show the names and the variable labels for the two data sets and produce Output 20.7.1:
proc contents data=HistBetween varnum; ods select position; run; proc contents data=HistWithin varnum; ods select position; run;

The next steps are designed to produce a more parsimonious display of the most important information in Output 20.7.2. The next step creates a data set named HistTests
. Only the observations from the input data sets that are needed for interpretation are included. The variable Hypothesis
in the HistWithin
data set is renamed Source
, and the NumDF
variable is renamed DF
. The renamed variables correspond to the variable names found in the HistBetween
data set. These names are chosen since the template for the ModelANOVA table is used in subsequent steps. An explicit length
for the new variable Source
is provided since the input variables, Hypothesis
and Source
, have different lengths. The following statements produce Output 20.7.3:
data HistTests; length Source $ 20; set HistBetween(where =(Source ^= 'Error')) HistWithin (rename=(Hypothesis = Source NumDF=DF) where =(Statistic = 'Hotelling-Lawley Trace')); run; proc print label; title2 'Listing of the Combined Data Set'; run;

The amount of information contained in the HistTests
data set is appropriate for interpreting the analysis; however, there is still extra information, and the information of
interest is not being displayed in a compact or useful form. This data set consists of multiple tables, an ANOVA table with
between-subjects information, and multivariate statistics tables with the variables renamed to match the names in the ANOVA
table. This form was chosen so that the data set could be displayed using PROC GLM’s ANOVA template. A template specifies
how the data set should be displayed and which columns should be displayed. The output from the ODS TRACE statements shows
that the template associated with PROC GLM’s ANOVA table is named Stat.GLM.Tests
. You can use the Stat.GLM.Tests
template to display the SAS data set HistTests
, as follows:
title2 'Listing of the Selections, Using a Standard Template'; proc sgrender data=histtests template=Stat.GLM.Tests; run;
The SGRENDER procedure displays the DATA= data set with the specified TEMPLATE= template. (You can use PROC SGRENDER to display both graphs and tables.) The results are displayed in Output 20.7.4.

Alternatively, you could display the results by using a DATA step as follows:
title2 'Listing of the Selections, Using a Standard Template'; data _null_; set histtests; file print ods=(template='Stat.GLM.Tests'); put _ods_; run;
The next steps create a final display of these results, this time by using a custom template. This example shows you how to use PROC TEMPLATE to do the following:
redefine the format for the SS and Mean Square columns
include the table title and footnote in the body of the table
translate the missing values for SS and Mean Square in the rows that correspond to multivariate tests to asterisks
add a footnote to a table
add a column that depicts the level of significance of each effect
The following statements create a custom template:
proc template; define table CombinedTests; parent=Stat.GLM.Tests; header '#Histamine Study##'; footer '#* - Test computed using Hotelling-Lawley trace'; column Source DF SS MS FValue ProbF Star; define Source; width=20; end; define DF; format=bestd3.; end; define SS; parent=Stat.GLM.SS choose_format=max format_width=7; translate _val_ = . into ' *'; end; define MS; parent=Stat.GLM.MS choose_format=max format_width=7; translate _val_ = . into ' *'; end; define Star; compute as ProbF; translate _val_ <= 0.001 into 'xxx', _val_ <= 0.01 into 'xx', _val_ <= 0.05 into 'x', _val_ > 0.05 into ''; pre_space=1 width=3 just=l; end; end; run;
The CHOOSE_FORMAT=MAX option along with FORMAT_WIDTH=7 chooses the format for each column based on the maximum value and an
overall width of 7. Alternatively, you could have specified a format directly by specifying, for example, FORMAT=7.2 or FORMAT=D8.3.
The TRANSLATE statements provide values to display in place of the original values. The first two TRANSLATE statements display
missing values as an asterisk with leading blanks added to ensure alignment with the decimal place. The third TRANSLATE statement
displays p-values greater than 0.05 as a blank, values greater than 0.01 but less than or equal to 0.05 as a single 'x
', and so on. The ProbF
column is printed twice—once in the usual way as a numeric column with a PVALUE format and once with a column of blanks or
x’s. For detailed information about PROC TEMPLATE, see the section “The Template Procedure” in the
SAS Output Delivery System: User's Guide. The following statements use the customized template to display the HistTests
data set:
title2 'Listing of the Selections, Using a Customized Template'; proc sgrender data=HistTests template=CombinedTests; run;
The results are displayed in Output 20.7.5.

These next steps display the same table, but this time changing the background color for the entire row to highlight effects with p-values less than 0.001 and also those with p-values less than 0.01. The table is displayed three times. Output 20.7.6 displays the results by using bold green and yellow backgrounds and a bold font. Output 20.7.7 displays the results by using subtler cyan and yellow backgrounds and a bold font. Output 20.7.8 displays the results by using very subtle cyan and gray backgrounds and a normal font. This control is provided by the CELLSTYLE statement in PROC TEMPLATE. You can do many things with the CELLSTYLE statement to enhance your output. Several more are shown in other examples in this chapter. These next steps create the custom template with varying colors and fonts and display the results by using PROC SGRENDER:
%macro hilight(c1,c2); proc template; define table CombinedTests; parent=Stat.GLM.Tests; header '#Histamine Study##'; footer '#* - Test computed using Hotelling-Lawley trace'; column Source DF SS MS FValue ProbF; cellstyle probf <= 0.001 as {background=&c1}, probf <= 0.01 as {background=&c2}; define DF; format=bestd3.; end; define SS; parent=Stat.GLM.SS choose_format=max format_width=7; translate _val_ = . into ' *'; end; define MS; parent=Stat.GLM.MS choose_format=max format_width=7; translate _val_ = . into ' *'; end; end; run; proc sgrender data=HistTests template=CombinedTests; run; %mend; title2; ods _all_ close; ods html style=HTMLBlue; %hilight(CX22FF22 fontweight=bold, CXFFFF22 fontweight=bold) %hilight(CXAAFFFF fontweight=bold, CXFFFFDD fontweight=bold) %hilight(CXEEFAFA, CXEEEEEE) ods html close; ods listing;

All colors are specified in values of the form CXrrggbb, where the last six characters specify RGB (red, green, blue) values on the hexadecimal scale of 00 to FF (or 0 to 255 base 10). You can run the following step to see the correspondence between the integer and HEX formatting of values in the range 0 to 255:
data _null_; do color = 0 to 255; put color 3. +1 color hex2.; end; run;
The results of this step are not shown. Hexadecimal values 0 through F represent the numbers 0 to 15. A hex value xy can be converted to an integer as follows: . For example, BC is . Common colors are CXFF0000 (red), CX00FF00 (green), CX0000FF (blue), CXFFFF00 (yellow, a mix of red and green), CXFF00FF (magenta, a mix of red and blue), CX00FFFF (cyan, a mix of green and blue), CXFFFFFF (white, a mix of red, green, and blue), CX000000 (black, no color), CXDDDDDD (very light gray), CX222222 (very dark gray), and so on. Colors become lighter as the RGB values increase and darker as they decrease. For example, cyan (CX00FFFF) can be lightened by increasing the red component from 00 to FF until eventually it becomes indistinguishable from white. It can be darkened by jointly decreasing the green and blue values until it becomes indistinguishable from black.
The three CELLSTYLE statements that set the colors after the macro variables are substituted are as follows:
cellstyle probf <= 0.001 as {background=CX22FF22 fontweight=bold}, probf <= 0.01 as {background=CXFFFF22 fontweight=bold}; cellstyle probf <= 0.001 as {background=CXAAFFFF fontweight=bold}, probf <= 0.01 as {background=CXFFFFDD fontweight=bold}; cellstyle probf <= 0.001 as {background=CXEEFAFA}, probf <= 0.01 as {background=CXEEEEEE};
The first color, CX22FF22, for the smallest p-values in the first table is a bold green color. The first table uses almost pure green and pure yellow, but a little red and blue are added to slightly lighten the colors. The second table uses a cyan and yellow that are very light due to the addition of AA (170) red and DD (221) blue, respectively. The third table uses a cyan that is not much different from light gray, and a light gray that is not much different from white.
