Hi:
Creation of catalog entries is a feature of "device-based" graphics, such as you would create with PROC GCHART, GPLOT, GREPLAY, etc.

As it describes here
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/graphref/61884/HTML/default/a003275276.htm
in the doc
"Template-based graphics are always produced as image files and never as GRSEG catalog entries."

Template-based graphics include any graphic that is controlled with the ODS Graphics statement -- which includes PROC SGPANEL.

Thank you cynthia for your answer.
in fact my problem is that:
i want to have an HTML file,
when i submit my proc SGPANEL, it creates an html files and pictures files also,
but i must send only the HTML file to my customer and if i don't send the pictures with the HTML file, the graphics pictures do not appear in the HTML file, so how can i do ?
is there a way that my graphics pictures are included in my HTML file so that i could send only my HTML file ?
Thank you and have a nice day.

Hi:

HTML works by creating an <IMG> tag to point to the image file to be loaded. This, generally, allows the HTML content to load and then, as the browser is ready, it can get the images from the web server. You've probably seen image heavy web pages that have text appear first and then images pop up after the text on the page has loaded. This is the whole point of an <IMG> tag. It seems as though the person who requested HTML, but no image files might have had another format in mind?

The good news is that for RTF and PDF destinations, the image is converted to an "internal" RTF or PDF format. So, in a sense, the image from SAS is embedded in the document. If you used RTF or PDF instead of HTML, you would not have to worry about a separate image file. In this case, PDF might be the safest file type to create and send, as almost everybody with a web browser also has a PDF viewer like Acrobat Reader.
