Re: ods Excel output destination

Hi:

  None of the 4 items you list are actually ODS destinations. So, they are all wrong, misspelled, incorrect, etc. Have you tried any code using the destinations that you've listed here? For example, there is NO ODS WIN2K destination or ODS WINXP destination.

  The list below shows the ODS destinations which can create output for Excel to open and render in a workbook/worksheet. There are other destinations that will work (for example ODS HTML) -- but this is the list of the most "Microsoft-friendly" destinations. I leave it to you to search on support.sas.com and in this forum for examples of each of these destinations.
