I have been working with SAS now about 2 years. Coming from other softwares like SATA, I loved the flexibility of SAS code, the diversity and the power.
However, many things could be imrpoved, especially when it comes to the way SAS uses/displayes the data variables/table columns.
STATA had a great feature: It displayed the names of the data variables / tables columns headers in a tab so that you dont need to remeber them or get en error when you misspell them. Double clicking the variable name in STATA inserts it into the line code directly, which is very handy
This becomes very frustrating in SAS when you are working on multiple projects, each of which might have several tables and tens of variables.
SAS enterprise with its Intellisense/auto-complete, but nevertheless the feature dosent always solve the issue (still needs improving)
I am wondering whether there is a way in SAS to get the variables displayed like STATA or is it a feature that should be requested to make life easier when using SAS?
SAS Studio (online version) dose have this feature by the way... though you cant double click it to insert into code text like STATA
