Effectively getting data into and out of SAS is key for a SAS programmer, and data will come in a variety of formats. Explore inputs and outputs from the SAS system.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • control when SAS writes an observation to a data set using an OUTPUT statement
    write to more than one SAS data set
    control SAS variable input and output with DROP and KEEP
    control SAS observation input and output with OBS and FIRSTOBS
    use the RETAIN statement to create an accumulating variable in SAS
    use the SUM statement to create an accumulating variable in SAS
    summarize data by groups using BY-Group processing in SAS
  • summarize data by multiple groups using BY-Group processing in SAS
    use column input to read input data that is arranged in columns or fixed fields in SAS
    use formatted input to read both standard and nonstandard data that is arranged in fixed fields in SAS
    use multiple INPUT statements to read a group of records in a raw data file as a single observation in a new data set in SAS
    use a line-hold specifier to prevent the second INPUT statement in a DATA step from moving to the second line in a raw data file in SAS
    use the MISSOVER and DSD options to control behavior with missing values in raw data in SAS
