I'm creating an excel spreadsheet with multiple sheets using tagsets.ExcelXP. I would like to be able to use the sas delivery portal for user to access the spreadsheet. Has anyone done this, if so would you share how this could be done. Thanks

Take a look at some of the papers listed here:

Toward the end of the papers there is a section that should get you started.

Thank you both for the response, I was able to create a multi sheet excel work book. I do have another question, the file it creates is very large and take about 4 minutes to open. Is there another ods tagset set that would have better performance? Thanks
TAGSETS.EXCELXP is the only destination that creates multi-sheet workbooks. ODS TAGSETS.EXCELXP generates Spreadsheet Markup Language XML -- and the XML is very verbose. Rendering the XML into Spreadsheet form and especially multi-sheet form takes time.

Other than HTML or CSV, which both create single-sheet output when rendered in Excel, the only other tagset destination that creates output for Excel is TAGSETS.TABLEEDITOR. It makes an HTML file with embedded VB Script to create an Excel file usually with a button to initiate the export from HTML to Excel using VB. I don't remember whether it creates multi-sheet workbooks or not, but the doc and the updated tagset template is here:

Using the SAS Add-in for Microsoft Office allows you to open data sources, run analytic tasks or create stored process results all from within Excel. Have you benchmarked the time to open the multi-sheet workbook in the Portal against the time to open a workbook that was designed using the SAS Add-in for Microsoft Office??
