PROC REPORT

I'm using SAS version 9.1.3 on Windows XP Professional platform. I have some programs that create monthly reports on Excel2003 spreadsheets using PROC REPORT. I don't use tagsets, just "ods html". This month, all the sheets are blank. What is the likely cause of this? The log doesn't show any errors. I checked the data source manually, and there are, in fact, observations that meet the query criteria for the report.

Please help.

Re: PROC REPORT

Hi:
Here are some ideas: If you have an ODS HTML statement at the top of your code, do you have a matching ODS HTML CLOSE at the bottom of your code??? Frequently one of the reasons that output is not created is the absence of the proper ODS HTML CLOSE statement.

Another reason that output is not created is the absence of the proper RUN step boundary at the end of your procedure step.

Another debugging technique is to open the HTML file with NOTEPAD. If the HTML file is empty, that indicates some kind of issue with your ODS file creation.

If there are no errors in the SAS log and you have checked all the above conditions, then you may want to open a track with Tech Support. To open a track with Tech Support, go to:
