Will there be any change if the graph generated in sas 9.1 is executed in sas 9.3?

Dear All,

This is a issue i observed when the graph in pdf format created in sas 9.1 version is executed in sas 9.3. The graph when executed in sas 9.1 , generated the output in the outfile location as mentioned. However when the same graph is executed in sas 9.3 with the same outfile location, is saving the graph in the work area but not in the outfile location. could you please let me know the reason for this.

There is no error or warning observed.

i am using the proc gplot , proc greplay procedures. what i observed from the log is that the gsasfile is able to resolve to the given outfile location but the output pdf file saved to the work area.

Any suggestions.

Thanks,

Jag

Thanks,

Hi:

  I am not sure why you are using GSASFILE if you are creating a PDF file. Normally, if you do this:
  

**SAS/GRAPH GPLOT step that makes image in GSEG catalog;
   

ODS PDF file=...;

**your proc greplay code here;

ODS PDF CLOSE;
   

  Then ODS PDF would "grab" your GREPLAY image and insert it into the PDF file. No GSASFILE needed. Usually, you use GSASFILE when you want to create an image without the "wrapper" document.
     

  However, since you did not post any code, it is very hard to comment on the specifics of your question beyond the most general. For example -- yes, between SAS 9.1.3 and SAS 9.2/9.3, there were significant changes that could impact PDF file creation or any image creation because of the SAS/GRAPH and ODS GRAPHICS changes to support style templates and the introduction of the new fonts and font handling routines as described in these papers:

http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings10/035-2010.pdf

http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings12/260-2012.pdf
      

  My recommendation is that you work with Tech Support where they can look at ALL your code, including your ODS statements and ALL your data and help you come to the best resolution. I am including below an example of creating an ODS PDF file using PROC SGPANEL, just to illustrate the simplicity of the new ODS GRAPHICS framework to make "paneled" output where no GREPLAY (and no GSASFILE) is needed. The program to make the data is longer than the SGPANEL code to make the paneled output.

Re: Will there be any change if the graph generated in sas 9.1 is executed in sas 9.3?

Hi Cynthia,

The issue was resolved when i used the following code just above the proc gplot procedure

goptions gsfname=file;

filename file"~Path/.pdf";

Thanks,

Jag
