The SAS® Programmer's PROC REPORT Handbook: ODS Companion
By Jane Eslinger
Anticipated publication date: First quarter 2018
Many programmers are faced with generating reports that are easy to read and comprehend. That is where the ODS destinations and style changes come into play.
PROC REPORT is the most versatile of the reporting procedures. It is the most often used procedure to generate the complex reports of today’s world. While The SAS Programmer’s PROC REPORT Handbook: Basic to Advanced Reporting Techniques details how PROC REPORT works, this companion book explores how the style elements within a style template affect the output generated by PROC REPORT. The purpose of this book is to focus on the presentation aspects of PROC REPORT.
The book covers the style elements from style templates that PROC REPORT uses to construct the visual aspects of the report. It provides examples of altering the style elements and the effect on the main ODS destinations. Subsequent chapters focus on individual destinations. They delve into specific changes that must be made to the PROC REPORT code for that destination. The chapters also discuss key points to bear in mind when developing code for that specific destination.
