  11. 11. <ul><li>DATA steps typically create or modify SAS data sets, but they can also be used to produce custom-designed reports. For example, you can use DATA steps to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>put your data into a SAS data set </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>compute the values for new variables </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>check for and correct errors in your data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>produce new SAS data sets by sub-setting, merging, and updating existing data sets. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>PROC (procedure) steps typically analyze and process data in the form of a SAS data set, and they sometimes create SAS data sets that contain the results of the procedure. PROC steps control a library of prewritten routines (procedures) that perform tasks on SAS data sets, such as listing, sorting, and summarizing data. For example, you can use PROC steps to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>print a report </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>produce descriptive statistics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>create a tabular report </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>produce plots and charts. </li></ul></ul>11/13/09 SAS Techies 2009
