Ron, I can't say enough good things about Ray's (Dr. Ray Pass of
Ray Pass Consulting) paper "You Can Get There From Here and Back
Again Adding Hot-Link Dill-Down to %DS2HTM and %TAB2HTM Output"!
With all due respect to the other very clever paper authors, I
think that this is the most important paper that I have read in
the last year! In that paper, Ray illustrates a very clever,
very straight-forward method of creating hot-links within static
HTML tables to "drill down" to other HTML tables and pages. If
you are not currently using SAS/IntrNet, and would like to amaze
your colleagues and confound the SAS-hating crowd in your
organization, you should definitely read this paper.
About 1.5 weeks ago, I spent a day reading the paper and writing
SAS programs that use Ray's methodology to HTML-ize and hot-link
HTML tables together, based on SAS data sets at my client's site.
My clients were blown away with the results. Just think what you
could do if/when you get your own hot little hands on this
Ray, if I wore one, my hat would be off to you for this very
clever, very useful methodology!
