All the documentation about the creation of graphs with SAS® software states that ODS Graphics is not intended to replace SAS/GRAPH®. However, ODS Graphics is included in the Base SAS® license from SAS® 9.3, but SAS/GRAPH still requires an additional component license, so there is definitely a financial incentive to convert to ODS Graphics. This paper gives examples that can be used to replace commonly created SAS/GRAPH plots, and highlights the small number of plots that are still very difficult, or impossible, to create in ODS Graphics.
