This is an update of my previous post Make all SAS tables sortable in the output HTML
Previously I manually added the sortable plugin to the SAS output. With the PREHTML statement of PROC TEMPLATE, the sortable HTML template now can be automately saved for the future use.
/* 0 -- Create the sortable HTML template */
proc template;
define style sortable;
parent=styles.htmlblue;
style body from body /
prehtml='
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://cdn.jsdelivr.net/tablesorter/2.0.5b/jquery.tablesorter.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function( ) {
$(".table").tablesorter({widgets: ["zebra"]});
});
</script>
';
end;
run;

/* 1 -- Make all the tables sortable */
ods html file = 'tmp.html' style = sortable;
proc reg data=sashelp.class;
model weight = height age;
run;
proc print data=sashelp.class;
run;
While we explore the data or we like to change the order of SAS’s output tables, we only need to click the table heads, which is quite convenient.
