Learn how to add text between the output in an ODS HTML file.
The ODS TEXT= statement is used to insert text into an output file. When using this statement with SAS® 9.1.3, you must give the output destination (such as HTML, PDF, RTF, and so on), for example, ODS HTML TEXT='text-string'. When using this statement with SAS 9.2, however, you do not have to specify the output destination, for example, ODS TEXT='text-string'. Learn more

Count Words, Specific Characters, Specific Substrings within a Text String »Beginning with SAS 9.1.3 there are new functions that can be used to count specific characters, specific substrings, and words in a string.
COUNT, COUNTC, and COUNTW were added to the BASE Functions in SAS 9.1.3. However, COUNTW is not documented in the 9.1.3 online documentation. It is in 9.2
COUNT will count the number of times a specific substring appears within a character string. Caution: If two occurrences of the specified substring overlap in the string, inconsistent results will be returned. For example, COUNT('boobooboo', 'booboo') might return a 1 or a 2.
COUNTC will count the number of times a specific character appears within a character string.
COUNTW will count the number of words that appear within a character string.

PROC SORT is a frequently used Base SAS procedure with simple syntax. Unfortunately, anomalies in the key variables, especially mixed case character values, can present special challenges. Sort them out with this tip.
