Managing Report sources and images

Hello everyone,

My problem is described below.

I use EG (5.1 x64) for reporting via an EG object named "Report".

In this report I usually have several pictures of the diagrams in PNG format (like barcharts or geomaps).

Since I have to compile an MS Word version of the report (for the Board of Directors) I usually export SAS Report from EG in html format and then use exported pictures directly in MS reports.

After several months of exploiting I found out that in the "[Report_name]_files" folder, where the pictures were placed, there were additional pictures from previous reports.

This additional pictures were the exact "copy" of the pics I used previous month.

The first question is: how to get rid of them (graphics that is not used in current report) without recreating the Report object in EG?

+

is there any way to export graphics from EG in SAS code? I tried to use standart "ods graphics " statements in code, but there were no result.

If there is a way to do it - I could replace Report object with hardcoded export and than automate compilation of MS Word version.

Thanks in advance!
