Simple to complex–this small free eBook can help you!


I recently experienced one of life’s precious moments. My 9 year old granddaughter coaxed me up a tree. She loves to climb trees and she wanted Gma to experience the joy she felt when high above the earth. I recall as a child loving to climb trees. Life seemed so simple then and climbing a tree was one of my favorite past-times. Today, life seems very complex. My life, and I’m sure yours as well, is full of multi-tasking at work and at home. I’m forever trying to figure out how to simplify my life.

We have a new, little (and until October 16th) FREE eBook which we hope will help users simplify the new way of doing graphics.

SAS 9.3 ODS Graphics: Getting Started with Business Graphics and Statistical Graphics shows SAS users how the ODS Graphics procedures and applications can be used together to produce graphs. From simple charts to complex statistical graphs, this small book will help you get started. If you’re having trouble making the switch to the ODS Graphical functionality (the new way of doing graphs) this title will help you.

Good for new and experienced users, you’ll want to read this eBook front to back. The book shows the differences between the ODS Graphics software components so that users can decide which components to use by themselves or in combination.

Jeanne Ferneyhough, writer for SAS Business Intelligence and Graphics documentation says, “These components all use the Graph Template Language, and this book shows the user how all of these components, when used together, provide a comprehensive solution for creating, editing, and annotating graphs.”

For example, it shows how to define a new graph with the ODS Graphics Designer and then render that graph using an ODS Graphics procedure. Used together, the ODS Graphics procedures and applications provide a comprehensive solution for creating, editing, and annotating graphs. This eBook explains how the ODS Graphics software components complement each other, and how they can be used together.

I will admit I never thought at ‘my age’ that I’d be climbing a tree. With my granddaughter’s help and encouragement, there I was up in the tree and it felt wonderful! And we’ve begun to explore the woods and check out other trees to climb, too. I hope our little eBook will give you the encouragement and help you need to climb into the world of SAS 9.3 ODS Graphics.

Stay tuned for additional upcoming free Kindle eBook offers from SAS Publishing!
