The following Question & Answer List is based on SAS questions received by the author.
How do I use an existing Cascading Style Sheet instead of an ODS style?
An existing cascading style sheet (CSS) file can be specified in the ODS HTML statement, e.g.:
ODS HTML FILE="c:\temp\report.htm" STYLESHEET=(URL="stylesheet.css");
You can also use ODS to generate that CSS file for you, based on an existing ODS style, e.g.:
ODS HTML FILE="c:\temp\report.htm" STYLESHEET="stylesheet.css" (URL="stylesheet.css") STYLE=sasweb;
How do I tell ODS to save my output in HTML format by default?
In SAS version 8 there is a Preference screen with settings available to tell SAS to save all DATA step and PROC output in Listing and/or HTML format:
For Listing output, check the
Create Listing box,
For HTML output, check the
Create HTML box, then check the
Use WORK folder box or specify the folder to hold the HTML pages using the
Browse button, then select the web page style from the
Style drop-down list.
If you are expecting to produce very large outputs, it is recommended that you un-check the
View results as they are generated box, to minimize performance delays.
