html viewer pages

Hello,

When I produce 2 graphs in SAS EG (4.1) in the default HTML viewer, the graphs appear on 2 pages. When I print a hard copy of the output that is also on 2 pages. Is there an option to get both the graphs on the same page?

I do not intend to use pdf or rtf output.

Thanks.

Yes.  You can switch to using SAS Report instead of HTML.  SAS Report is available in SAS 9.1 and EG 4.1 - it's the default format for EG 4.2 and later.

Then you can use File->New->Report to combine your two graphs into a single output report, which is suitable for printing.

Here's are some blog posts with examples:

Thanks Chris.

I need to somehow give the options programmatically (instead of the File->New->Report step) as I want to output a number of reports iteratively.

Could this be done without using ODS or would it be better to use ODS HTML?

In SAS 9.1/EG 4.1, you can use ODS HTMLPANEL to achieve this.  See my example here:

ODS LAYOUT is another option, but I think that you really need at least SAS 9.2 for this to work reliably.
