Now Starring Susan and Lora in “SGPLOT and SGPANEL Procedures”

ODS Graphics is not exactly new.  It became production with SAS 9.2 back around 2008, and before then it existed in a pre-production form at least as early as 2003.  So you would think that by now everyone who uses SAS would be using ODS Graphics, but apparently this is not the case. It...

February 19, 2014
By

Starting with SAS 9.4, by default, PROC REPORT runs in noninteractive mode. In other words, you no longer have to specify the NOWINDOW option in order to...
