A bit of a technical question.


Does proc step refer to any procedure (including proc print, proc contents) or does it specifically refer to proc sql?



Community Manager

Depends on context, but usually "PROC step" refers to any SAS procedure step.


Sometimes people compare PROC SQL vs DATA step for data management tasks.  But that can be a little narrow, as really you have PROC MEANS/SUMMARY for summarization, TRANSPOSE for "flipping" rows/columns, FREQ for counting, etc -- it's a larger suite of procedures to accomplish data-related goals.
