EGUIDE and ODS

Hi All,

I have running EGUIDE 4.3 with SAS 9.2.

Inside my project I have a sas program node that will create a boxplot and save it to a gif file (I need it saved for dynamic html I am building), I also need the file name to be unique. Below is the code:

code.png

Remember this is running inside EGUIDE. The issue is I get as a saved file grass_anova1.gif, dirt_anova1.gif, etc.... The filename  I create is unique but the ODS (or something) puts a number at the end before the .gif. By the way when the HTML file is created this does not happen, so I am thinking it is how EGUIDE, The plot, and ODS is setup.

Is there a way to remove this?

Thanks, Chris

I could be mistaken but the default appears to be image.png and then image1.png without the reset statement.

You can try adding the reset option as per sasdocs.

ods graphics on/ reset=index imagename=...;

This behaviour does occur in SAS Base as well.

Thanks,

I know abut the reset statement, all this does is reset the index back to an appendage of 1. Here is my current output.

In this case it was the fifth time I ran the code in the same session, so it appends 5. I gues I can always reset it back to 1 and use it that way for my future html code.

Thanks, Chris
