If you are doing logistic regression couldn't you present the significance level of each regression run and possibly the odds ratios, one line per regression run?

Subject: Bivariate and multivariate results
I've got a client who is running a lot of multiple regressions. She also wants to present the bivariate results. I've run this as a PROC CORR with the WITH statement, for ease of programming and compact output. I think this makes sense.
But I've not seen results presented this way (i.e. a table of correlations, and then a multiple regression).
Now, she wants to do a similar regression on a dichotomous DV, which, of course, calls for logistic regression. I could recode the DV as 0 1, and again present the correlations.... again, this gives compact output, and a nice simple program. It's meaningful, since the DV is dichotomous. But will it fly in a journal?
Or am I missing something more fundamental?
TIA as always
