Hi SAS Programming Community,

I’m presenting a live “Ask the Expert” webinar on May 3rd, 10 AM – 11AM ET entitled Why Choose Between SAS Data Step and PROC SQL When You Can Have Both? I’ll cover where the SAS DATA step has a distinct advantage over SQL and where you just can’t beat SQL. I’ll also demonstrate which tool will better help you in reading raw data and in joining, accumulating, aggregating, and managing data. Bring your questions. I’ll host a live Q&A session at the end of the webinar.


You will learn:

  • How to choose SAS programming techniques that will optimize your code – and your time.
  • How to combine PROC SQL and the SAS DATA step to get the best of both.
  • How easy it is to switch between the two languages to get what you want. of SAS survey procs.

Reserve your spot for the webinar.
