Hi there! I've been using SAS for a long time, but consider myself new when it comes to anything more than the basics. Looking forward to your recommendations. I know the general options like proc report, ODS, and DDE, but definitely don't know the pros and cons. And I haven't been able to find a single text book that covers one or more of those and has concrete examples. I'm sure I'm missing something. Truth be told, I usually use Stata. Thanks for any advice on good books.

For ODS I would start with ODS The Basics and Beyond:

https://www.amazon.com/Output-Delivery-System-ODS-2009-11-19/dp/B01NH083IO

Yes it's 15 years old, but I think it's still the ODS bible.

 

For PROC REPORT in particular, would go with Art Carpenter's REPORT bible:

https://www.amazon.com/Carpenters-Complete-Guide-REPORT-Procedure/dp/1599941953

 

and also consider Jane Eslinger's pair of REPORT books:

https://www.amazon.com/SAS-Programmers-PROC-REPORT-Handbook/dp/1629601446
https://www.amazon.com/SAS-Programmers-PROC-REPORT-Handbook-ebook/dp/B07BG9QGT8

Lots of views, but no suggestions. Forgot I was writing for statisticians. Should've asked "favorite" v. "best" book 🙂 Thanks in advance to anyone willing to share their favs.

@MattJans  Jane Eslinger will be presenting a free lunch (US Eastern Time) BASUG webinar on using PROC REPORT with ODS Excel. Might be a helpful overview, and since it's a live webinar, it's also an opportunity to ask questions.  Register (free) at https://www.basug.org/events .

 

(Oh, I just looked and saw you registered already!  Maybe that means the advertisement in my .sig is working. We've had a great response for this webinar.  You're attendee #269!)
