Subject: Re: ODS to Excel
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Another way to do it is to make an html ODS file, but when you
name the file give it an .xls extension (from your example tmp.xls).
Excel will open the file without difficulty. Upon opening, Excel will
see that it is an HTML file and do an internal conversion to display
it with the correct formats.
Here is an example:
/* This is the template used for the Excel file */
DEFINE STYLE MinimalNoBorderRule;
REPLACE Output from Container /
background = colors('tablebg')
rules = NONE
frame = VOID
cellpadding = 7
cellspacing = 0
bordercolor = colors('tableborder')
borderwidth = 1;
/* This create the output files */
%let myfile ='/space/home/jnokes/output/OpenThisFirst.xls';
/* Create the Excel File */
ods html file = &myfile style = MinimalNoBorderRule;
ods html close;
I hope this helps.
