Excel using EXCELXP tagset

Hi,

I successfully created a multisheet excel with the help of various resources available in SAS support website. While i was formatting the look of the output i am facing a difficulty.

In the below picture i was not able to generate the AAAA row. Any ideas would be very helpful. I tried the title option but not able to change the title styles and also it is giving an additional one line gap. Please let me know how i can achieve the below format. I am very much new to SAS.

Is this what you want? Title will automatically take two rows though:

ods listing close;

ods tagsets.excelxp

file="c:\temp\test.xml"

;

title "aaaa";

ods tagsets.excelxp

options ( embedded_titles ='yes'

);

proc print data=sashelp.class;

run;

ods tagsets.excelxp close;

ods listing;

Hi Hai.ko,

I tried title 'AAAAA' but i am not sure how to change the style of the title element. If you know how to control the style of the title i would be happy to use that in my code.

Well, if the present factory styles can't meet your need, you probably need to create your own style. And this topic is too big to be addressed in several sentences. Please do a search on proc template and ODS styles.

Also, although 'options' seem to be universal, 'styles' are not. You would only see them working on  proc print, report and tabulate. So you are using something else other than these 3 procs to output, forget about styles.

Could do what you want relatively easy using Proc Report as opposed to Proc Print. More ability to control each element of output including the AAAA row.

Hi,

There is a way to remove the space below the title.

ODS TAGSETS.EXCELXP OPTIONS(EMBEDDED_TITLES='YES'

EMBEDDED_FOOTNOTES='YES' skip_space='0,0,0,0,0');
