Re: is there any option to send procedures used in program to output file

Output Delivery System is used to take output from procedures and put it out to external files.

If you mean do some sort of code analysis and pull out a list of procedures used in code, then no, as far as I am aware there is nothing to do that.  The reason being is you have the code file, if you really need some information from that read it in as a text file into a datastep and then pull out the information you need (or pull in the log as conditional macro might prevent code running).  I really dont see any benefit to doing this anyway as there are several ways to do things, so just knowing some procedures may not get all the info:

ex;
proc means v proc summary v proc sql sum/count etc v datastep retained counts etc.

SAS Enterprise Guide 7.x can create Excel files from the any procedures output without additional code. Depending on the SAS version available to you and the environment you are working in, you will have to search for "ods excel" and/or "ods tagset.excelxp". Your will moist likely find a paper explaining the details.

 

If you want to move the procedures logic to Excel: no that is not possible.
