Help identifying forum posts

I'm currently working on a project where everyone's expertise would be of enormous help.

To date, together, we've contributed more than 80,000 posts to the forum.  I am currently mining those posts to come up with a framework that, hopefully, will make it easier for everyone to tap those posts in order to quickly find the answers to their questions if those questions have already been answered on the forum.

That is where you come in.

Please send me as many examples as you can.  For each example, I need a statement of the question that was addressed, and links to posts that provided good answers to the question.

You can either post them as replies to this question, or send them to me, directly, at art297@rogers.com.

Thanks in advance,

Art

Re: Help identifying forum posts

Other than a response from LinLin, I haven't received ANY other responses.  However, I just discovered that art297@rogers.com was blocking most email addresses.  I think the problem has been resoved but, just to be sure, please send your links to atabachneck@gmail.com

TIA,

Art

Re: Help identifying forum posts

Hi Art,

Sorry I could not respond to this as I was v. busy.

I am a SAS Data Analyst who has been immensely benefitted from this forum. 

Could you please let me know if this kind of table would work for your project needs?

If so, I can go ahead and fill this table up.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Re: Help identifying forum posts

: Exactly what I am looking for and very much appreciated!

Everyone else: Please send me as many links, like Mirisage did, as you can.  The quality of the resulting product, which we intend to make available (for free) to everyone once completed, will be dependent upon the number and scope of the links received.

Everyone: Best wishes for the holidays from me and mine to you and yours!

Re: Help identifying forum posts

Hi Art,

Please find some inputs towards your project which will eventually benefit us.

BTW, have you also posted this same query in “SAS Procedures” forum which is the one I frequently use.

Wish you a Happy New Year!
