I have recently awared that ODS excel became available to SAS users to produce native excel file(xlsx) that can insert charts. I have done that successfully on the EG.
I am just wondering when it comes to stored process, how do you make the following codes work if you use streaming output in stored process.(I do not want to save any excel output and just want to display it with AMO)
ods excel FILE="c:\a.xlsx"
proc means data=sashelp.cars;
var msrp invoice;
ods excel options(sheet_interval="none"
proc sgplot data=sashelp.cars;
ods excel close;

This is a question for Tech Support. As far as I know, Excel can only receive 3 types of output from a stored process: CSV, HTML, SAS Report XML -- so you would have to ask Tech Support whether your idea will work in a stored process. Usually, if the client application can't receive some type of output, you can sometimes get nothing or sometimes get the default result type for the client application.

I have test it out the code ods excel without stored process, it was working fine. But when it came to the stored process, error messages generated. I have no idea what caused the problem.
