But when I try the following (ofcourse I added extra stuff to the new template. But here I am showing just the basic template with just the inheritence)
DEFINE TAGSET TAGSETS.TEST3;
ODS TAGSETS.TEST3 FILE = "F:\ct.xls" ;
GOPTIONS xpixels=600 ypixels=400 device=activex;
proc gplot data=sashelp.class ;
plot weight*age height*age;
ODS TAGSETS.TEST3 CLOSE;
When I opened the file in excel , I saw 2 very small distored charts.
I was under the impression when we create a new template using the existing template, both should produce the same results except the new features added to the new template. Any Idea why it's behaving like this.
The ACTXIMG driver was new in SAS 9. ActiveX was the only "ActiveX" device driver available in SAS 8. Anyway, if you change the ACTXIMG to ACTIVEX or JAVA you should still be able to test your code. But the fundamental issue, I think, is what's happening inside the changed tagset and not the device driver.
In my opinion, it's still a good idea to contact Tech Support for more help. They have a UNIX system that they can test on and they can help you if it IS a device driver issue AND they can help you if it's a tagset issue.
