Changes and Enhancements to SAS/STAT Software in V7 and V8

Output Delivery System

All procedures now incorporate the Output Delivery System (ODS). This is a system for managing the results of a procedure. By default, the results for a procedure are directed to the SAS listing file as in previous releases, but with ODS you can create HTML or RTF files, create SAS output data sets of any table in the output, select or exclude pieces of output from a procedure, or modify the organization and style of that output. Chapter 15, "Using the Output Delivery System," describes some typical uses of ODS with SAS/STAT software and provides a description of the basic features. Refer to The Complete Guide to the SAS Output Delivery System for complete documention of ODS.

As part of the ODS implementation, some of the output of the SAS/STAT procedures has been reorganized to be consistent across procedures.

[V8] In Version 8, some of the table names have been changed for various reasons. However, note that the table names that were in effect for the Version 7 release are still accepted, so programs written for Version 7 will still work.
