SGPLOT output - how to rearrange with PROC DOCUMENT and output to HTML?

SAS folks-

I need your help again.  I have been poring over the documentation and lots of papers, and have managed to rework some old GPLOT code into SGPLOT.  Now I have some nicely titled graphics that update on a weekly basis via a batch on scheduled task.

It creates a set of graphics with combinations of parameters over a timeframe that updates based on the current date for a number of station locations.  The station and timeframe selections change on a frequent basis, so I do my final data selection before starting the graphics, use a BY statement for the stations, and MIN and MAX with macro variables on an AXIS statement for the timeframe.  

In the old GPLOT graphics, all the different plots for one sampling station were together.  With SGPLOT, the graphics of the same type are together, and the stations are separated.  With my current settings, I am generating 378 graphics files, so it’s not a small output.  

My folks would now like me to display the graphics both ways, in the same HTML frame with the parameter grouping first and the station grouping second.  This should be a perfect application for PROC DOCUMENT. Using links instead of generating a second set of graphics files would also be ideal. I also had a shot at turning it into a macro, getting information from the dataset.

I have been able to set up the ODS DOCUMENT, and rearrange the output using LINK. However, when I output the modified DOCUMENT to HTML, it generates a duplicate set of graphics files.

Also, I can’t figure out where there is some sort of table (view or whatever) with the DOCUMENT information.  My current macro requires coding of all the links for one set, so that would change every time I add or delete a set of graphics.

I’m sure there is a much better way to do this, and I’m stuck on what to try next to eliminate the double graphic files, or how to make the rearrangement macro better.  I’m the rearrangement will  become a standard feature on output, so I’m trying to make it as painless as possible. 

ODS is confusing me as well.  I can get ODS PROCLABEL to work, but not ODS NOPROCTITLE to get rid of ‘The SGPlot Procedure.’  I’m also unclear on why I need the third level directory to display the value of &&VARVAL&INDEX in the table of contents.

I set up a similar example using SASHELP.STOCKS (below), and I have attached (most of) the log and one of the graphic files (limit of 4 files).

We are running 9.3 with the output defaults set back to the 9.2 defaults, on a server with Windowns 2008 Enterprise, so I do not have access to the registry.

Any help you can give me would be very welcome!

To get rid of "The SGPlot Proecude" try the sgplot option DESCRIPTION= "text-string"

Re: SGPLOT output - how to rearrange with PROC DOCUMENT and output to HTML?

Folks- I've been messing with this again, and have finally come up with a solution, but it still could use improvement.

I have come up with the following macro:

%MACRO RESORT_GRAPHS(DSN,VAR_NAME,FROM_DOC,TO_DOC) ;

PROC SQL NOPRINT ;

SELECT DISTINCT &VAR_NAME INTO :VARVAL1- FROM &DSN ;  

%LET VARCOUNT=&SQLOBS ;

QUIT ;

PROC DOCUMENT ;

  DOC NAME=&TO_DOC.(WRITE) ;

    MAKE &VAR_NAME ;  

     %do index = 1 %to &varCount;  

        MAKE \&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX ;  

        MAKE \&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#1\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#2\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#3\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#4\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#5\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#6\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;    

            COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Sgplot#7\ByGroup&INDEX.#1\SGPlot#1 to \&TO_DOC\&VAR_NAME.\&&VARVAL&INDEX.\&VAR_NAME ;

    %END ;

           COPY \&FROM_DOC.\Print#1\Print#1 to \&TO_DOC\^^ ;

DOC CLOSE ;

RUN ;

QUIT ;

ODS DOCUMENT CLOSE ;

%MEND ;

%RESORT_GRAPHS(GRAPH1,STATION,WORK.GROUP_GRAPHS,WORK.STATION_GRAPHS) ;

DSN is the GRAPH1 dataset, STATION is the variable I want to use (name of sampling location), and then the ODS document names. Currently, I have 7 different types of graphics run with various parameters, and I would like to resort them to have all 7 graphics for one station (location) together. The above macro worked fine on my first station list, which was all character.

However, I have an additional station list where the station is all numbers, and the path errors out with the numbers.  I can hardcode in a character, but that could cause some problems with folks thinking the character is part of the name.

Help!
