Finally figured it out - instead of the above, I need to use
ODS SELECT CONTRASTS;
which (in effect) turns everything else off except the CONTRASTS.
OK, seems to make sense. The fact that I had to dig through 40 pages
of documentation, make a fe guesses, and then trial and error, does
not. ODS (and SAS in general) seem overly focussed on 'reports' of
For many of us, all we want is the statistics. What would be far
simpler than ODS is a system where every option had its own sub-option
for outputting things.
CONTRAST 'title' SEX 1 -1 / outstat=my contrasts;
i.e., making an output or outstat option for every part of every
procedure. Seems to me this would be infinitely simpler than ODS.
