2009 is almost over, and us SAS employees are busy compiling information for our managers to answer the question, "Just what did you do this year, anyway?"
I'm asking the same question of you, Dear Reader. What did you get from this blog in 2009?
Here are the most visited topics from The SAS Dummy blog (not in any particular order) for the past 12 months:
Lengths and Formats: the long and short of it
What's the difference between LENGTH and FORMAT? This topic is so popular I've made sure to work it into SAS 9.2 for Dummies (due out this spring).
Creating a SAS format from a data set
Once you know what a FORMAT is, you want an easy way to build one, right? This is an add-on task for SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 and will be built into our next release.
Importing SPSS files into SAS Enterprise Guide
It was an add-on task for SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1, and it's built into SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2.
Running SAS PROCs on your Facebook Friends
PROC MAFIAWARS is not available yet. And although SAS got its start as a tool to analyze agricultural research data, the FARMVILLE procedure is still in the very early stages.
Announcement: SAS on the Wii
SAS users do appreciate a good joke! (You do realize it was a joke, right? I'll admit our legal department wasn't completely amused at first...)
Thanks for reading. Keep your comments coming!
