    Categories: Ceeotter56 Papers and Presentations, NESUG 2012, ODS OUTPUT Statement, Output Delivery System
    The Output Delivery System (ODS) delivers what used to be printed output in many convenient forms. What most of us don't realize is that "printed output" from procedures (whether the destination is PDF, RTF, or HTML) is the result of SAS® packaging a collection of items that come out of a ..→
  10. PROC CATALOG, the Wish Book SAS® Procedure
