Exporting Data & Print Options

Object Menu Functions

SAS Visual Analytics (SAS VA) dashboards showcase data in the form of report visuals and tables. Each visual and table contains an “Object Menu” hidden with an assortment of options. “Save image”, “Export data…”, and “Print object…” are among these menu options. To access the Object Menu, hover the mouse over any report visual or table and a stack will appear in the top right corner. Select the Object Menu icon.

Save Image

  1. In the Object Menu, select “Save image”.
  2. Your browser will promptly export and download the object image in PNG format to the “Downloads” file location set for your web browser. This is usually the “Downloads” folder on your local drive.

Exporting Data

  1. In the Object Menu, select “Export data…”.
  2. Once selected, the “Export Data” window will appear. Select the rows and columns you wish to export. By default, SAS VA select all rows and columns represented in the table or visual for export.
