Hello,

 

I am trying to export results to a PDF but despite the results showing up in the results viewer in SAS, whenever I add the ods PDF code it ends up just giving me a PDF with the ENTIRE dataset.

 

I'm sure this is an easy fix but I'm not seeing it.

 

Sorry and thanks!!!

 

Code:

ods pdf file-"uniresults.pdf";

proc univariate data=file4;

var apple orange panda

run;

ods pdf close;

Likely an issue with graphics then. If you don't need the graphics turn them off, otherwise you may have set something somewhere else that's causing issues. What about other destinations?
If it's a secure lab, like a Statistics Canada RDC, they actually explicitly turn this off so you cannot extract data this way. Only they can generate the output.

file- should be file=, equals instead of a dash.

Otherwise your code looks correct. If this is just a typo, please post your code and log.

Oh yes, just a typo

 

Code:

ods pdf file="uniresults.pdf";

proc univariate data=file4;

var apple orange panda

run;

ods pdf close;

 

Log:

everything runs fine till the last line which says

 

Error: Device is offline (in a dark brown color)

 

The computer I'm coding on isn't allowed to be hooked up to the internet (per the data security agreement)...:/

Thank you Reeza!!! My IT person just got back to me and said its the default. I just like the PDF for the formatting!

 

I wish I was somewhere so cool, I'm just a lowly grad student with a computer I've signed away by first born child on to use!!!
