  • Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
  • Virtual Lab time to practice.

Skills Gained

  • design graphs that describe data in the most appropriate fashion
  • customize default graphic elements such as axes and legends
  • apply annotations that supplement the features that are available with SAS/GRAPH procedures
  • deliver graphs in multiple formats, such as static image files and client-generated images.

Who Can Benefit

  • SAS users who must use SAS program code to generate graphs in batch or noninteractive execution environments, such as SAS Stored Processes, or those who need to produce a large quantity of graphs with minimal user interaction

Prerequisites

  • Before attending this course, you should complete the SAS® Programming 1: Essentials course or have equivalent programming experience.
