I usually use SGPLOT to make statistical graphics, and currently the output graph is associated with png pic type.
Everytime the SGPLOT generates a graph, it also creates a file in the local folder.
Is there anyway that I can view the graph in SAS without creating a file in my computer?
I chose the result preference that "viewing results using internal browser", but seems not work here.
It would be really appreciated that someone could instruct how to view graphs in SAS efficiently.
Thanks and Regards
There are a few ODS output formats you can use that will embed the graph in the output file without having a separate image file. These include:
ods rtf file="whatever.rtf";
ods pdf file="whatever.pdf";
ods ps file="whatever.ps";
I would recommend trying RTF or PDF first, as they will diplay the best in your Display Manager session. Do note that you will still get a file on your disk ("whatever.rtf"), but that is the only file you see, regardless of the number of graphs or tables in your output.
Hope this helps,
I am using SGPLOT to make a simple line graph. I'm using ODS to output it to a PDF. And it is making the PDF, but also still insisting on making the .png file.
Is there a way to turn off the creation of the .png? I'll be running a macro to make many graphs, and I do not want my workspace, or any space, littered with .png files. I only need the pdfs.
