Incorporating broad coverage of the best ODS features in one book, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond goes beyond Lauren Haworth's original ODS text to demonstrate the many new and enhanced features of ODS and SAS 9.2. With SAS 9.2, ODS provides a myriad of choices for reporting and displaying analytical results with a greater variety of formatting selections and output destinations. As experienced SAS users, Lauren E. Haworth, Cynthia L. Zender, and Michele M. Burlew know how important it is to be able to produce customized output in different formats to meet the needs of clients. Geared toward all levels of SAS users, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond is an example-driven book that presents each of the wide array of ODS techniques in an easy-to-use, two-page layout, with the text and code on one page and the resulting output on the facing page. The book begins with basic syntax and progresses to more complex techniques and custom styles. You will learn to take basic SAS output and transform it into an HTML page, a word-processor-friendly RTF file, or printer-friendly PDF output. You'll learn how to generate a table of contents page for RTF and PDF files, generate bookmarks for PDF files, and generate custom page numbering for those destinations. You will also learn the basic concepts of changing style templates, using table templates with the DATA step, and using tagset templates to generate custom markup language tags and output. Other new features of ODS are also discussed, such as the ODS Graphics Framework and the new ODS Statistical Graphics procedures.
