The Complete Guide to the SAS Output Delivery System

Storing Links in the Results Folder

When you run a procedure that supports ODS, SAS automatically stores a link to each piece of ODS output in the Results folder in the Results window. It marks the link with an icon that identifies the output destination that created the output.

Consider the following SAS program, which generates Listing, HTML, and Printer output as well as an output data set (Output output). The data set STATEPOP contains information about the distribution of the United States' population in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas for 1980 and 1990. A DATA step creates this data set.

options nodate pageno=1 linesize=80 pagesize=34;
ods html file='results-body.htm';
ods printer file='';
ods output basicmeasures=measures;
proc univariate data=statepop mu0=3.5;
   var citypop_90 noncitypop_90;
ods html close;
ods printer close;
ods output close;

The Results folder shows the folders and output objects that the procedure produces.
