Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2013Description: xxi, 253 p.ISBN: 9781466552388.Subject(s): SAS (Computer file) - Handbooks, manuals, etc | Statistics - Data processing - Handbooks, manuals, etc | Database management - Handbooks, manuals, etc | SAS (Computer program language) - Handbooks, manuals, etcDDC classification: 005.55 Summary: To write an accomplished program in the DATA step of SAS®, programmers must understand programming logic and know how to implement and even create their own programming algorithm. Handbook of SAS® DATA Step Programming shows readers how best to manage and manipulate data by using the DATA step. The book helps novices avoid common mistakes resulting from a lack of understanding fundamental and unique SAS programming concepts. It explains that learning syntax does not solve all problems; rather, a thorough comprehension of SAS processing is needed for successful programming. The author also guides readers through a programming task. In most of the examples, the author first presents strategies and steps for solving the problem, then offers a solution, and finally gives a more detailed explanation of the solution.
