Not to my knowledge, in Version 6.12.
However, my ODS in Version 8.2 introduction course from Long Beach said the
output of any procedure can be surfaced in HTML, RTF etc...'
So, if you run 8.2 (and perhaps earlier versions 8), then the answer should
Setting the cell contents to be the GIF images should be possible by storing
the GIF tag in text within the data set variables called by Proc Calendar.
These would then resolve to references to Anchor or Image tags. Seems
possible, not tested, FWIW.
