SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1 sample data sets

The company I work for did not install the sample.zip file of sample SAS enterprise guide 5.1 data sets so I  can use them to learn SAS enterprise guide better. Where can I obtain the sample.zip file that was not installed please? Can someone give me the link for the location so I can download that zip file?  Debra

Re: SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1 sample data sets

Do you have SAS Base installed as well? Are you talking about the files in Sashelp library or somewhere else?

Is you EG running off a server?

Yes, base SAS 9.3 is installed. SAS enterprise guide and base SAS operate from the hard drive on the desktop. I work in Dept of Defense and the IT staff did not install the sample.zip file so I want to obtain that from SAS's web page if I may. How do I do that? What web page should I go to? Or are there other SAS sample data sets available so I can have clean, well-scrubbed data to illustrate various statistical tests to my students? Debra

I don't know what sample.zip is, perhaps someone else will. However, the SAS documentation has datasets for all of the procs. 

So if you're doing statistical procedures you can create the datasets by running the code. All of the sample code and data required can be found online, or via your installation. See the links included in the thread below.

Re: SAS Enterprise Guide 5.1 sample data sets

Installed with SAS Enterprise Guide, there are over 130 data sets provided as samples.  These are in PROGRAMFILES\SASEnterpriseGuide\5.1\Sample (for EG 5.1).

 

I've attached the AboutSampleData.txt file, also included in that directory, which describes each data set and what types of analysis it might be suited for.
