Advanced Reporting and Analysis Techniques for the SAS® Power User:
It's Not Just About The PROCs!
There are literally hundreds of techniques used on a daily basis by the
users of SAS® software as they perform analyses and generate
reports. Although often obscure, most of these techniques are
relatively easy to learn and generally do not require specialized
training before they can be implemented. Unfortunately a majority of
these techniques are used by only a very small minority of the analysts
and programmers. They are not used more frequently, because a majority
of SAS users have simply not been exposed to them. Left to ourselves it
is often very difficult to ‘discover’ the intricacies of
these techniques and then to sift through them for the nuggets that
have immediate value.
This one day course presents a series of those nuggets. It covers a
broad range of SAS topics that have proved to be useful to the
intermediate and advanced SAS programmer that is involved with the
analysis and reporting of data. The intended audience is expected to
have a firm grounding in Base SAS. For most of the covered topics, the
course will introduce useful techniques and options, but will not
‘teach the procedure’.
The course includes options and techniques associated with:
- MEANS/SUMMARY - new and advanced techniques
- User Defined Formats - directives, nesting, preloaded, multi-label
- REPORT Compute Blocks
- The Macro Language
- Output Delivery System, ODS
- Operating System Interfaces
- DATA Step Functions and Options
- and more . . . .
