Calcite | Level 5


I have SAS 9.3 running in windows. I have GTL code that creates a scatter plot (I am over simplifying it - it is actually a heat map and scatter plot overlaid since heatmap does not have a url option). I can create the url just fine, however when I look at the output the target is set to "_blank". How to I change the target to a frame? I havebelow a sample of the output:

<Area shape="poly" alt=" tdate = 2014-05-23 

product_name = VULCN_RE 

cummyld1 = 93.455 " title=" tdate = 2014-05-23 

product_name = VULCN_RE 

cummyld1 = 93.455 " href=".\mean_trends\VULCN_RE_1000.html " target="_BLANK" coords="164,138,191,138,191,165,164,165,164,138,"/>

Thanks, Chris


In SAS 9.4, we added the DRILLTARGET option to the ODS GRAPHICS statement to enable you to set the target. Unfortunately, the only solution that comes to mind for SAS 9.3 would be to post-process the HTML file by substituting _BLANK with the frame name.

Thanks, I did see that in 9.4. We have not upgraded yet. I will ask our admin to upgrade on the development box. Thanks, Chris

One other possible alternative that could work in 9.3 - if you could rewrite your graph using SAS/Graph procs, that will allow you to manually create your drilldown string, and include whatever html tags you want (including target=).
