I need your experience for the creation of a nice user interface by sas base and sas macro.
For that, I begin the exporation of %windows and %display

The really nice interface would be to use SAS/AF and SAS/FSP but without details of what you mean by "nice" and what you may be attempting then it is hard to tell what to recommend. "Report" has some many steps for some things, data prep, procedures, models, graphics ... that a single recommendation is likely to be incomplete.
And do not stay just with the MACRO versions of %window as there is a data step Window as well.
In Base SAS you may also want to look at PMENU to add more persistent menues than %window provides.
Do you already have all of the code needed to implement all of the options for one of these reports?

Another downside of using %WINDOW or WINDOW is that Base SAS has to be installed on all user's PCs.
Using a SAS Stored Process via a custom web page avoids this issue however there is a significant learning curve if you've never done anything like this before. This link is a good starting point:

And what are the logical processes that you need to interface to?
As I mentioned in the other thread, stored processes will probably be the way to go.
