Hello Linlin,
Here is about +1C with a light drizzle. Do you get payed during the closed days? 
We get December 25 and 26 and January 1st as holidays, only 3 days. Whatever extra holiday we take is considered as vacation time according to our collective agreement. I won't take any extra vacation this year during the Christmas holidays because of my current situation. Being stuck at home, there is not much else for me to do but work. I get 25 days of vacation per year. I cannot accumulate more than 35 days, on the 1st of April.
Are you a member of a Union?

Hi Pierre,
No, I am not a member of a Union, and I don't think there is a Union for people doing similar work as what I do. Yes, the closed days are payed vacation. Every holiday in America is a holiday for us. Besides that I (there are different categories) have 1.7 days vacation and 1.7 days sick time each month. people don't have to be very sick to use sick time. When we complain the low salary of BU, the administers would remind us how good it is to work for BU, such as so much vacation time, flexible working hours(Sue Blease works from 5:00AM), free parking, tuition benefit.

Are you a member of a Union? When did you start to use the Forum? I started to use the Forum in October 2011.

Yes I am unionized. All non executive civil servants in Canada are members of one of two unions: the professionals and the non-profesionnals. Mathematicians are in the same bargaining unit as research scientists. 
I started using the Forum in September 2011.

Thanks. I learned basic SQL in University. I learned SAS by myself. Only the features that I absolutely needed to get my job done. My participation to the Forum has introduced me to many new features of SAS.
I was convinced that you had been on the Forum much longer, given your mastery of so many aspects and your point score.

I like the idea, but question how SAS would 'paginate' code.
