Appearing Soon at SAS Global Forum

In Everything, Little SAS Book Series, ODS Graphics, SAS, SAS Global Forum, SAS Papers on April 8, 2010 at 2:28 pm

In just a few days I will fly to Seattle for SAS users’ biggest event of the year: SAS Global Fourm, April 11-14, in Seattle, WA. I hope to see you there.

If you are a fan of SAS Press, then be sure to visit the Pubs booth in the Demo Room Monday from 6:00-7:30 pm. That’s when SAS Press will host the Authors’ Reception and Book Drawing Mixer. The drawing will feature one book by every published author in attendance. So come on by to meet lots of authors and test your luck.

I just learned that you must register for the book drawing by 6:15 to have a chance to win, and, of course, you must also be present to win. The drawing proper will start promptly at 6:30 and will be over by 6:45!

Then on Tuesday in the highly-coveted 8:00-9:20 am time slot, Lora Delwiche and I will present Using PROC SGPLOT for Quick High-Quality Graphs , in the Hands-on Workshop section, Room 6C. I am enormously grateful that the Kick Back Party is Tuesday night, not Monday! If you are an early riser, then why not join us?

Can’t make it to Seattle? Here are the links for our paper, handouts, data sets.

Using PROC SGPLOT to Create Quick High-Quality Graphs: The Paper One of the great new features in SAS 9.2 is ODS Graphics which includes the SGPLOT procedure. This paper includes both an introduction to PROC SGPLOT, and a concise reference of syntax that you may want to keep on your desk whenever you write PROC SGPLOT code. Other topics covered are PROC SGPANEL, options for controlling and accessing individual graphs, and the ODS Graphics Editor.

Using PROC SGPLOT to Create High-Quality Graphs: The Handout This is the handout for the hands-on part of the workshop. Follow the step-by-step instructions for an introduction to PROC SGPLOT, PROC SGPANEL, and the ODS Graphics Editor. (Note that you also need the data sets available below.)

Using PROC SGPLOT to Create Quick High-Quality Graphs: The Data This zipped file contains the SAS data sets used in the paper and hands-on workshop. Using these data, you can run the examples yourself.

Quick Reference Tables for PROC SGPLOT This file contains tables summarizing the rather extensive syntax for PROC SGPLOT. These tables are a good tool for learning PROC SGPLOT, and also a handy reference. These are the same syntax tables that appear in the paper listed above but are in grayscale instead of color.
