The Output Delivery System (ODS) is a great for SAS users to customize how SAS output is displayed.

There are two main ways of using ODS:

  • Pull output objects from SAS procedures and saving them to a SAS dataset for further manipulation or formatting.
  • Create highly formatted tables in other application formats, such as HTML, PDF or an Excel table. You can also create an Excel workbook with multiple spreadsheets with SAS output.
