Have you ever wondered why there has been so much excitement about ODS ever since it was introduced? How does ODS significantly enhance the presentation quality of reports and create files that were never before possible from SAS? Have you ever thought about how ODS can directly improve your daily activities and what it actually has to offer you as a programmer, statistician or manager?

If you have ever had any of these questions about ODS, then this presentation is for you because it provides something for everyone at all levels. As a programmer, you can now create most any file types directly from SAS. In addition, the level of control and flexibility to format the output enables a higher degree of customization. As a statistician, you will want to take advantage of ODS for more efficient data analysis. The tools available in ODS facilitate multiple iterations of an analysis and ease of locating significant results. As a manager, you have various options to view and analyze your data and reports. Managers can access complex hierarchy of drill-down HTML or PDF files for a better understanding of the data or custom excel files with ODS’s latest technology.
