PROC DOCUMENT by Example Using SAS demonstrates the practical uses of the DOCUMENT procedure, a part of the Output Delivery System, in SAS 9.3. Michael Tuchman explains how to work with PROC DOCUMENT, which is designed to store your SAS procedure output for replay at a later time without having to rerun your original SAS code. You’ll learn how to: save a collection of procedure output, descriptive text, and supporting graphs that can be replayed as a single unit save output once and distribute that same output in a variety of ODS formats such as HTML, CSV, and PDF create custom reports by comparing output from the same procedure run at different points in time create a table of contents for your output modify the appearance of both textual and graphical ODS output even if the original data is no longer available or easily accessible manage your tabular and graphical output by using descriptive labels, titles, and footnotes rearrange the original order of output in a procedure to suit your needs After using this book, you’ll be able to quickly and easily create libraries of professional-looking output that are accessible at any time.

Learn how to access analytics from SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS) using R and the SAS Viya platform. SAS Viya : The R Perspective is a general-purpose introduction to using R with the SAS Viya platform. SAS Viya is a high-performance, fault-tolerant analytics architecture that can be deployed on both public and private cloud infrastructures. This book introduces an entirely new way of using SAS statistics from R, taking users step-by-step from installation and fundamentals to data exploration and modeling. SAS Viya is made up of multiple components. The central piece of this ecosystem is SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS). CAS is the cloud-based server that all clients communicate with to run analytical methods. While SAS Viya can be used by various SAS applications, it also enables you to access analytic methods from SAS, R, Python, Lua, and Java, as well as through a REST interface using HTTP or HTTPS. The R client is used to drive the CAS component directly using commands and actions that are familiar to R programmers. Key features of this book include: Connecting to CAS from R Loading, managing, and exploring CAS Data from R Executing CAS actions and processing the results Handling CAS action errors Modeling continuous and categorical data This book is intended for R users who want to access SAS analytics as well as SAS users who are interested in trying R. Familiarity with R would be helpful before using this book although knowledge of CAS is not required. However, you will need to have a CAS server set up and running to execute the examples in this book.

Incorporating broad coverage of the best ODS features in one book, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond goes beyond Lauren Haworth's original ODS text to demonstrate the many new and enhanced features of ODS and SAS 9.2. With SAS 9.2, ODS provides a myriad of choices for reporting and displaying analytical results with a greater variety of formatting selections and output destinations. As experienced SAS users, Lauren E. Haworth, Cynthia L. Zender, and Michele M. Burlew know how important it is to be able to produce customized output in different formats to meet the needs of clients. Geared toward all levels of SAS users, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond is an example-driven book that presents each of the wide array of ODS techniques in an easy-to-use, two-page layout, with the text and code on one page and the resulting output on the facing page. The book begins with basic syntax and progresses to more complex techniques and custom styles. You will learn to take basic SAS output and transform it into an HTML page, a word-processor-friendly RTF file, or printer-friendly PDF output. You'll learn how to generate a table of contents page for RTF and PDF files, generate bookmarks for PDF files, and generate custom page numbering for those destinations. You will also learn the basic concepts of changing style templates, using table templates with the DATA step, and using tagset templates to generate custom markup language tags and output. Other new features of ODS are also discussed, such as the ODS Graphics Framework and the new ODS Statistical Graphics procedures.

Sanjay Matange and Dan Heath's "Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example: Effective Graphs Using SAS" shows the innumerable capabilities of SAS Statistical Graphics (SG) procedures. The authors begin with a general discussion of the principles of effective graphics, ODS Graphics, and the SG procedures. They then move on to show examples of the procedures' many features. The book is designed so that you can easily flip through it, find the graph you need, and view the code right next to the example. Among the topics included are how to combine plot statements to create custom graphs; customizing graph axes, legends, and insets; advanced features, such as annotation and attribute maps; tips and tricks for creating the optimal graph for the intended usage; real-world examples from the health and life sciences domain; and ODS styles. The procedures in "Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example" are specifically designed for the creation of analytical graphs. That makes this book a must-read for analysts and statisticians in the health care, clinical trials, financial, and insurance industries. However, you will find that the examples here apply to all fields.
