Base SAS

I downloaded the free version for SAS University.  My question is, since I am not a programmer and I only want to learn how to use the software again, how can I access Base SAS instead of SAS Studio?  Do I have to purchase the program?

Re: Base SAS

The only interface that SAS UE provides is SAS Studio. Just open a code task, and you can run programs just like you did in Base SAS.

Re: Base SAS

Thanks. So I have a table that I uploaded but it does not give me the option like in SAP Base to change the name of the Columns. How do I do this in Studio?

Re: Base SAS

SAS Base wouldn't give you that option either...and doing it via point and click isn't recommended. 

What happens when you need to re-run this program? 

 

Use a RENAME statrement to change names 

 

data want;

set sashelp.class;

rename age=ageInYears weight=weight_lbs;

run;
