  • 1. What is SAS?
    The SAS BI SoftwareThe SAS BI System is an integrated suite of software for enterprise-wide information delivery... Applications of the SAS System include executive information systems; data entry, retrieval, and management; report writing and graphics; statistical and mathematical analysis; business planning, forecasting, and decision support; operations research and project management; statistical quality improvement; computer performance evaluation; and applications development.

    What is SAS system?
     The SAS System known well as Statistical Analysis System, is one of the most widely used, flexible data processing, reporting and analyses tools. SAS is a set of solutions for enterprise-wide business users as well as a powerful fourth-generation programming language for performing tasks or analyses in a variety of realms such as these: -
    Analytic Intelligence General Data Mining and Statistical Analysis Forecasting & Econometrics Operations Research

    SAS Books Recommended for industry application
    These books coupled with SUGI Papers will give you the impetus/basics to learn and explore more on the Internet.1. Professional SAS Programmer's Pocket Reference - Rick Aster       This book would be a must for any SAS Professional I guess.....It's a quick handy book for Syntax and  options......2. SAS Certification Prep Guide: Base Programming - SAS Institute      This book is a Prep Guide for BaseSAS....I would suggest you to read the whole book before you attempt the exam in addition to the SAS Online tutor, as it covers some uncovered syllabus on the latter....3. Cody's Data Cleaning Techniques Using SAS Software - Ron Cody       This book is an excellent source of examples of SAS in real-world applications....

    SAS macro to Create / Remove a PC Directory...
    Here's a SAS macro to Create and Remove a PC Directory... Often we ignore Notes and warning in the SAS log when we try to create/remove a directory that does/doesn't exist...This macro first checks for the existence of the directory and then create/delete it or else put a message to the SAS log...try it out :-) /* Macro to Create a directory */
    %macro CheckandCreateDir(dir);
       options noxwait;
       %local rc fileref ;
       %let rc = %sysfunc(filename(fileref,&dir)) ;   
       %if %sysfunc(fexist(&fileref)) %then
          %put The directory " &dir" already exists ;
       %else
         %do ;
             %sysexec mkdir " &dir" ;
             %if &sysrc eq 0 %then %put The directory &dir has been created. ;

    Ways to Count the Number of Obs in a dataset and pass it into a macro variable...
    Well...there are many ways of getting the observation count into a macro variable...but there a few pros and cons in those methods...1. using sql with count(*)..  eg.         proc sql;              select count(*) into :macvar             from dsn;         quit; pros: simple to understand and develop cons: you need to read the dataset in its entirety which requires processing power here...2. datastep  eg.        data new;          set old nobs=num;          call symputx('macvar',num);       run;

    SAS macro to split dataset by the number of Observations specified
    Suppose there was a large dataset....This SAS macro program splits the dataset by the number of observations mentioned...macro name%split(DatasetName, No ofobservation to split by)/* creating a dataset with 100000 observations*/
    data dsn;
    do i=1 to 100000;
    output;
    end;
    run;
    %macro split(dsn,splitby);
    data _null_;
    set &dsn nobs=num;

    SAS Programming Efficiencies
    The purpose of this document is to provide tips for improving the efficiency of your SAS programs. It suggests coding techniques, provides guidelines for their use, and compares examples of acceptable and improved ways to accomplish the same task. Most of the tips are limited to DATA step applications.   Efficiency   For the purpose of this discussion, efficiency will be defined simply as obtaining more results from fewer computer resources. When you submit a SAS program, the computer must: 
    load the required software into memory 
    compile the program

    SAS macro to reorder dataset variables in alphabetic order...
    How do you reorder variables in a dataset...I get this many a times....
    Here's a macro for you to achieve it...For example I've used a dataset sashelp.flags and created some more variables with variety of variables with names upper / lower cases and _'s to demonstrate the reorder macro....   Please try this macro for yourself and let me know your suggestions....
     
    /* Example dataset with variety of variable names */
     
    data flags;
    set sashelp.flags;
    a=2;
    b=4;

    SAS Interview Questions and Answers(1)
    What SAS statements would you code to read an external raw data file to a DATA step?
    We use SAS statements –
    FILENAME – to specify the location of the file
    INFILE - Identifies an external file to read with an INPUT statement
    INPUT – to specify the variables that the data is identified with.

    SAS Interview Questions and Answers(2)
    If you're not wanting any SAS output from a data step, how would you code the data statement to prevent SAS from producing a set?
    Data _null_;
     
     _NULL_ - specifies that SAS does not create a data set when it executes the DATA step.
     
    Data _null_ is majorly used in
     
    creating quick macro variables with call symput routine
    eg. 
              Data _null_;
                 Set somedata;
                 Call symput(‘macvar’,dsnvariable);
             Run;
    Creating a Custom Report

    Use SAS function Propcase() to streamline Google Contacts
    You might think I am crazy...but I have been using this macro for a long time to fix some contacts in my Google Contacts...I get a little irritated when I can't find a particular person by email...so I wrote this macro...This macro takes for Input a .csv file that is exported from Google Contacts and outputs a file that is ready to be imported to Google Contacts....often I wanted to have Names in the proper case...Try it yourself and let me know if it needs any tweaks...Propcase in SAS Documentation.
    %macro organizeGoogleContacts(infile,outfile);
    /*Import your contacts into SAS */

    SAS Macro to split a dataset into multiple datasets vertically with a common primary key
    This macro splits a dataset to multiple datasets vertically with a common primary key. For eg, a dataset has 400 fields and 20,000 records. If we can split the dataset into two, with 200 fields and 20,000 records in each dataset with a common field like loan number as primary key would be helpful to load the details for analysis.
     
    /**
    To be called like this...
    %splitdsnverticallykey(dsn,varperdsn,keyvars=);
    eg. %splitdsnverticallykey(sashelp.vtable,4,keyvars=memname libname);
     
    Where -----------
     
    dsn - libname.datasetname to be split
    varperdsn - How many vars per dsn excluding the key variables
    keyvars - specify the primary key variables
    */

    SAS Macro that reads the filenames available at a particular directory on any FTP server (i.e. Windows Network Drive/Unix/Mainframe)
    Here's a macro that reads the filenames available at a particular directory on any FTP server (i.e. Windows Network Drive/Unix/Mainframe)...
    For Windows network drives we use the Filename Pipe Statement
    For Mainframe and Unix we use the FileName FTP protocol statement.
    For further reference please refer to Filename statements in SAS Documentation.
    First we need to create 2 Excel files
    ServerList.xls – 3 columns with servertype | host | sourcedir
