style/formatting disappears when using tagsets.excelxp

Hi all--

I had put together a series of frequency tables using ods MSOFFICE2K and proc tabulate. I now have to incorporate the frequency tables into a workbook with several other sheets. The new workbook is produced tagsets.excelxp.  Each of the other sheets uses proc report to generate outputs – outputs different than frequency tables.  When I add in the additional sheet, all the style/formatting, which worked when I used MSOFFICE2K, disappears. Is there a way to preserve the look of the sheet now that I’ve incorporated it into a workbook which is generated using tagsets.excelxp?  

Thanks for any help!

odstagsets.excelxp file=" Z:\SAS\SASCODE\Test.xls"

style=minimal

options(sheet_interval='none'  ORIENTATION='Landscape'

AUTOFIT_HEIGHT='yes'FROZEN_HEADERS='5' embedded_titles='yes'

PAGE_ORDER_ACROSS='yes'COLUMN_REPEAT='7' ROW_REPEAT='5'sheet_name="Sheet1");

Proc report, Proc report Proc report Proc report …………….

Re: style/formatting disappears when using tagsets.excelxp

Hi:

When I used a (very) simplified version of your code (below), the PROC TABULATE output does show the modified style attribute changes..even with the Minimal style as the base style (created with SAS 9.3 and using Excel 2010). I have a hard time discerning font changes, so I threw in some color changes just so I could quickly see what was happening and if the style changes were being used.

Since you have a PAGE dimension in your TABLE, you cannot "touch" the PAGE variable using CLASSLEV -- you'd have to move the PAGE variable into the BOX area and then change the style of the BOX area -- generally, that is how the BOX area is used (with BOX=_PAGE_) for 3 dimensional tables. (For example, in my example, SEX is the PAGE dimension variable, but there would be no point using a CLASSLEV statement for that variable in Sheet 3. If you look at the code for Sheet4, you will see how I made the PAGE dimension text bold and gray on a purple background.) Compare Sheet 3 with Sheet 4 and 5 -- you will see that the CLASSLEV style override in Sheet5 for the page variable has no impact.

If you run my code and you do not see style changes, then you probably should open a track with Tech Support.

Re: style/formatting disappears when using tagsets.excelxp

HI:

  I notice you seem to have some cut and paste issues (missing spaces, etc), so I don't know whether this is your actual code or a paste error. This statement seems wrong:

odstagsets.excelxp

options(sheet_interval='none' ORIENTATION= "portrait"

AUTOFIT_HEIGHT='yes'

FROZEN_HEADERS='no'

embedded_titles='yes'

sheet_name="Sheet3"

Print_Footer="Page: &P" ods escapechar='^';

because ODS ESCAPECHAR is not one of the TAGSETS.EXCELXP option -- and, I don't see a close parentheses for the options list.

I think you should have something like this:

ods tagsets.excelxp

      options(sheet_interval='none' ORIENTATION= "portrait"

                 AUTOFIT_HEIGHT='yes'

                 FROZEN_HEADERS='no'

                 embedded_titles='yes'

                 sheet_name="Sheet3"

                 Print_Footer="Page: &P" );

ods escapechar='^'; /* this should be a separate statement */

Can you verify that you have a separate ODS ESCAPECHAR statement? And that you have the proper closing parentheses for your OPTIONS list??

Hi Cynthia--

yes that was a cut and paste issue. I do have this:

ods tagsets.excelxp

      options(sheet_interval='none' ORIENTATION= "portrait"

                 AUTOFIT_HEIGHT='yes'

                 FROZEN_HEADERS='no'

                 embedded_titles='yes'

                 sheet_name="Sheet3"

                 Print_Footer="Page: &P" );

ods escapechar='^';

I don't know what the deal is.
