Abstract

You've heard that SAS® Output Delivery System (ODS) Graphics provides a powerful and detailed syntax for creating custom graphs, but for whatever reason you still haven't added them to your bag of SAS® tricks. Let's change that! Presented is a code playground based on Microsoft Office that will enable you to quickly try out a variety of prepared SAS ODS Graphics examples, tweak the code, and see the results—all directly from Microsoft Excel. More experienced users will also find the code playground (which is similar in spirit to Google Code Playground or JSFiddle) useful for compiling SAS ODS Graphics code snippets for themselves and for sharing with colleagues, as well as for creating dashboards hosted by Microsoft Excel or Microsoft PowerPoint that contain precisely sized and placed SAS graphics.
