ODS output result not displayed

Hi,

I have a program that creates an output file using ODS Target.excelxp.

When i run it normally in EG , i see an addtional tab of result from where I can download it.

However when i convert the code and run it as a stored procedure, the result tab does not appear.

Please see the attachment.

Has anyone faced this issue before and was able to solve it.  Is there some setting I am missing ?

Thanks

Smijo

Re: ODS output result not displayed

Hi:

  There have been many previous forum postings, in this forum, about using TAGSETS.EXCELXP. Generally, as a stored process, TAGSETS.EXCELXP output can only be the destination returned to a few of the client applications: the Information Delivery Portal and to a browser using the Stored Process Web App. Even Excel will not accept a stored process whose destination has been set to TAGSETS.EXCELXP. If some client applications recognize that you are using a destination that they don't accept, they will either not show you anything or show you a blank screen or sometimes, change the destination behind the scenes to SASReport XML. So without actually seeing the code you created and whether your overrode &_ODSDEST correctly and/or whether you set the content-type header correctly, it is hard to make more constructive suggestions except that you search the forum for postings on stored processes and TAGSETS.EXCELXP. You should find plenty of hits.
