Live Webinar: Using the SAS ODS Graphics Designer

Course Length - 2 Hours

After this webinar, you will be able to produce professional, high quality data visualisations in a variety of image formats using the point-and-click environment of the ODS Graphics Designer. You will be able to produce simple plots all the way through to complex data visualisations, and to programmatically reproduce these using simple SAS code. You will also learn how to develop dynamic graph templates which can be re-used with different data.

This webinar is run as a dedicated live event arranged at a time to suit you. Please note, the cost per delegate is £80 plus VAT however there is a minimum charge of £800 to organise this event. 


This webinar is appropriate for anyone who would like to produce professional data visualisations using the power of SAS software through an easy to use point-and-click interface.


SAS experience is not essential to understand the core concepts of this webinar, SAS programming code required is covered during the webinar. However, an understanding of the fundamental concepts of SAS programming and the Output Delivery System (ODS) would be beneficial. Data preparation, requiring SAS programming experience and knowledge is not covered during this webinar, but would be an essential step prior to producing any data visualisation.

Please note: SAS functionality described in this webinar is based on functionality available from SAS 9.2 M3 and above.
