Hi, I'm a relatively new SAS EG user. I took the first training course recently and learned a lot--but there are a bunch of things I'm having trouble with, hoping others have thoughts on how to do these. Here are a couple:
1) I would like to test to see if a variable in my dataset is normally distributed. How can I do this in SAS EG?
2) I would like to identify and remove outliers from my data set. How can I do this in SAS EG?
Many thanks for any help you can provide, or resources you can point me to.

Click on Tables> Tests for Normality
You'll get a table like follows (for SASHELP.CARS, MPG_CITY).
There are various other options that you can look into. Testing is a good method to find things.
There isn't a set method to identify/remove outliers so you'll have to be more specific, how are you defining an outlier?
