|Using the Output Delivery System
Compatibility Issues with Version 6 Prototypes
- In Version 6, the MIXED and GENMOD procedures use a
prototype of the Output Delivery System. This prototype provides the
MAKE statement in order to create data sets from output tables, and this
statement remains supported in these procedures. However, the new
mechanism to create SAS data sets from output tables is the ODS OUTPUT
statement for all procedures.
- The Version 6 prototype of the ODS output hierarchy is stored in
a SAS catalog. The latest version of SAS software has a more flexible item-store
file type used to store templates and ODS output.
- The Version 6 prototype ODS uses two macro variables (_DISK_ and
_PRINT_) to regulate the saving of an output hierarchy. The
latest version of SAS software uses the global ODS statement to accomplish this task.
- The Version 6 PROC TEMPLATE and PROC OUTPUT syntax is not
compatible with the latest version of SAS software.
