Hi ... to get rid of the text "The FREQ Procedure", "The MEANS Procedure", etc. on procedure output, I use ...
That gets rid of that text even if I am producing output in the OUTPUT window in display manager mode in Windows, Normally, control of the OUTPUT window is done with OPTIONS statements, not ODS statements.
So, the question is ... is ALL procedure output "orchestrated" by ODS, even when writing to the OUTPUT window with no ODS destinations specified?
Yes, what we have lovingly called the LST or LISTING or Output Window all these years became "The LISTING Destination" in ODS land -- back in SAS version 7.
When the transition was made from the "old way" of creating LISTING output (output line by output line written from SAS to the SYSOUT or Output Window or LST file) to the "new way" of creating output, the LISTING destination is the name given to what old-timers like me called the Output Window. The Results Window in Display manager has hooks into ODS, too. You can use the ODS PROCLABEL statement to alter the top level node you see in the Results Window.
You can close or, if closed, open the LISTING destination with
ODS LISTING CLOSE; /*closes*/
ODS LISTING; /* opens if closed */
So, yes, ODS statements will impact the LISTING destination (aka Output Window).
One of the exciting new features of SAS 9.2, is that you can do this:
ODS LISTING STYLE=WATERCOLOR;
and that tells SAS/GRAPH what style template to use in the creation of Graph output (as long as you have 9.2 and the GSTYLE option is turned on) -- for device-based procedures such as GCHART and GPLOT.
