Visual Analytics - data preparation

Hello everyone!

 

I'm starting to use the VA and I have a doubt...

 

When I load my data to create the visualizations, the dataset need to be prepared already?

 

Can I transform the data inside the VA? Like getting only the year from a date field?

 

Thanks!

If you need to manipulate the raw data, you should use SAS Visual Data Builder. Then save the output of the query to a LASR table.

 

If you manipulate the columns within one of the clients, such as SAS Visual Analytics Designer or SAS Visual Analytics Explorer, then those changes are available only within the specific report or exploration.

You can do a lot with the data inside VA Smiley Happy

if you want to get the year from a date field, just change the format to year.

You can also create a new calculated variable and use the function year(date).

Hi @Madelyn_SAS

 

In the data preparation inside SAS Viya I get the options of drag and drop transformations only.

 

Is it possible to use code based transformations?

 

Thanks

 I did not realize that this was SAS Visual Analytics on SAS Viya. The SAS Data Studio User's Guide should be able to assist.
