Enterpise Guide or SAS v.9?

Hi I am writing a program and I was wondering if I should use Enterprise Guide or SAS programming. I need to use substrings, can I use substrings using enterprise guide. Lets say for example I have a Date of Visit and I need only certain years and certain months within those years. Can I do this using Enterprise Guide.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Rabiya

You can do just about as much in EG as you can in base. You have the option of writing your own code as well as using tasks.

I personally prefer using EG now and a couple of the main reasons is I find it much easier to control the flow of programs and to pass them on to others to run once written.

Rabiya,

For an overview of using SAS Enterprise Guide for SAS programming, see:

There has also been some good discussion in the blog comments.
