With the recent upgrade to SAS VA 8.2 ( from 8.1), I noticed that Data preparation replaced the data module builder. I was surprised to observe that the new module stripped away the GUI interface for Data Transformations. Not being a core SAS user, I am now left trying to figure out what functions ( and their respective syntax) are available for use in Calculated Columns functions. The help icon was not helpful as it took me to Data Studio's guide and to the Data Step command, which is not what I assume goes into the Calculated Columns function.
Wondering if there is a list available of functions and their respective syntax?
Note that not all datastep functions are supported in CAS but many of them are. Thanks for providing the feedback, and we do plan to provide an expression builder in a future release.
