ODS EXCEL

[ Edited ]

Hello expert,

i have tried to create a report using ods excel for example using the simple fake code below:

ODS EXCEL file='C:\A.XLSX';

DATA A;

A=1;

RUN;

proc report data=a;

run;

ODS EXCEL CLOSE;

 

the question is when I open the excel in SAS EG under the result tab, I was openning a ODS graphic editor rather than excel???

Re: ODS EXCEL

Hi:
In our classes, we recommend going to Excel to open the file, and NOT trying to open it from the EG interface. If you note the location where you wrote the .XLSX file, then just go to Excel --> and then File --> Open to open the file.

Sometimes, EG gets confused when faced with an XML type of file, which is what the .XLSX file is (XML in a zip archive format).
