Keeping historical versions of output from SAS Enterprise Guide


This is the topic of an 8-minute video tip from SAS Education.

What's great about this tip: not only does it show you how to keep historical versions of reports and data that you create in your projects, but it also provides a nice example of cross-tab reporting in SAS Enterprise Guide (Summary Tables task, which uses the TABULATE procedure). Also, it shows how you can generate PDF output and Excel spreadsheet files to share with others.

    Very nice. Learn something new every day.

    It was interesting to note that the tip was done over three days (Mar 15-17) even though it looked like one session (check the date stamps on the fly-overs of the .pdf files).

    I was envious of how fast his EGuide ran until I realized that the waits had been cut out.

  2. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!

    Yes, writing PDF files and exporting data files can take a few moments (or longer, depending on size). Glad that you find the tip informative.
