How to Add Action Button on SAS VA and Reset a Variable

Hello,

 

I am looking for following functionalities on SAS VA:

 

1) To have a button - clicking the button will copy data from one variable to the other variable

 

2) Reassign a variable post its use - For ex. V2 = 5;  V1 = V2 * 2; after this calculation V2 = 10

 

Any help in this regard will be much appreciated. I am using SAS VA 7.3.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Gaurav Shobhane

Hello Gaurav,

Parameters in VA might be what you are looking for.

I'm not sure if it is possible to have a button copy one variable to another. When you say "variable" here, you mean a single value, yes? As opposed to a column in a table?

Hi Sam,
Yes I am a looking to copy a variable rather than a column in table. I want to retain few values which will not change as per the selection. For ex I want to copy a variable and retain it once a user does first selection. Post subsequent selections I don't value of the derived variable in first selection to change. Hence, I am looking for an action button which will act only when desired.

Thanks for the clarification. I don't think this is possible, unfortunately.

If you write this functionality up as an idea here:

Then it will be reviewed as a possible feature for a future release.
