Lora Delwiche and Susan Slaughter offer a user-friendly approach so readers can quickly and easily learn the most commonly used features of the SAS language. Each topic is presented in a self-contained two-page layout complete with examples and graphics. The fifth edition has been completely updated to reflect the new default output introduced with SAS 9. Other changes include expanded coverage of linguistic sorting and a new section on concatenating macro variables with other text. This book is a great tool for users of SAS 9.
Genres: Computer Science. Who needs this book This book is for all new SAS users in business, government, and academia, or for anyone who will be conducting data analysis using SAS software. You need no prior experience with SAS, but if you have some experience you may still find this book useful for learning techniques you missed or for reference. What this book covers This book introduces you to the SAS language with lots of practical examples, clear and concise explanations, and as little technical jargon as possible. We have tried to include every feature of Base SAS that a beginner is likely to need. Some readers may be surprised that certain topics, such as macros, are included because they are normally considered advanced. But they appear here because sometimes new users need them.

Lora D. She has spent most of her career at the University of California, Davis, using SAS in support of teaching and research. Susan J. She now works as a consultant through her company, Avocet Solutions. Addressing the composition and operation of the SAS macro facility and the SAS macro language, this third edition offers nearly ready-to-use macros, macro functions, and macro tools that enable you to convert SAS code to macros, define macro variables, and more! Users with a basic understanding of Base SAS who are new to the SAS macro language will find more detail, utilities, and references to additional learning opportunities; advanced macro language programmers who need help with data-driven macros and dynamic application development will find greatly expanded treatment of these topics. But the focus of this book is on actual code used to solve real-world business problems.
All three are published by SAS Press. Sometimes they had several such shelves. This was the environment in which we conceived the idea of a small book that would be easy to use and would cover the most popular and important features of the SAS programming language. The book needed to be small and non-threatening, explain the fundamental concepts, cover each topic in just two facing pages so you could see an entire section at a glance, contain programs that are complete and executable so you could run them and see the results, include explanatory graphics, and avoid jargon as much as possible. Because SAS Enterprise Guide is a graphical user interface, writing about it required a little different approach.
