Since different organisations use of SAS software tends to be very individual, it's hard to give any relevant advice.

A list of SAS products that they use, and a brief description of their SAS usage, would help.

Linus,

Thank you for your advice.

In My company we are using SAS_Unix, PAM(Portfolio asses management), and Autosys for production.

Can you please tell me how to connect Unix_SAS to PAM and other tools and do you think we have any particular book to understand finance logic [e.g. to understand credit, debit management / Journals(Transaction,valuation, cash) etc..]

Please let me know my friend so I can get an more idea about it !!

Regards,

Ranny !!

Hi Ranny,

I shared your questions with a few book sales representatives in the SAS Publications division. You may want to take a look at this title- Using SAS in Financial Research https://support.sas.com/pubscat/bookdetails.jsp?catid=1&pc=57601

For more general assistance with using SAS, you may want to contact SAS Technical Support: http://support.sas.com/techsup/

Best of luck,

SG
