sasCommunity Tip of the Day

When generating output using ODS RTF, by default SAS inserts a dynamic date field that's updated each time your output is opened. To get the date the program was run, change one option:

Adding a date to a header or footer provides useful information about when a file was created or modified. By default, ODS inserts an RTF control string that corresponds to the Word date field in the page header of RTF output. This means that the date value is updated to the current date each time the file is opened. If you'd prefer the document to reflect the date the program was run, you just need to add one option to your ODS RTF statement:

ODS RTF FILE='StaticDate.rtf' SASDATE;

By adding this option, SAS will insert text for the current date when the program was run. Remember that the SAS date is actually the time and date that you started your SAS session. So, if a programmer keeps his/her session open for days at a time, this date might not correspond to the actual date the program was run.

SUGI 76 - SUGI 21 Conference Proceedings Now Online
Search and find SAS papers from 1976-1996
SUGI 1976
1st Users Conference

Since 1976, SAS users have gathered to share the unique ways they use SAS. At the end of each annual conference, the SAS Users Group International (SUGI) and later as SAS Global Forum collected all the individual papers (and posters) presented that year and published them in a volume of proceedings. These historical proceedings contain a vast number of papers which contain methods and techniques that are not available anywhere else to the SAS User Community.

Proceedings before SUGI 21 have not been accessible online - they were available only in bound paper volumes. To address this, the SAS Global Users Group Executive Board began a project in May 2010 to digitally capture SUGI 76 through SUGI 21 proceedings and make them available to the global SAS Community on sasCommunity.org.
