Base SAS


SAS Output Delivery System (ODS) packages enable ODS destinations to use the SAS Publishing Framework, which is a feature of SAS Integration Technologies. For information about SAS Publishing Framework, see the SAS Publishing Framework: Developer's Guide for your version of SAS in the SAS Integration Technologies documentation.

An ODS package tracks the output from any active destinations that connect with it. After the destinations close, the package can be published to any of the publish destinations. The package can continue to be used, or it can be closed. A package remains active until explicitly closed.
