SAS Visual Investigator has an attractive user interface. One of its most engaging features is the network diagram, which represents related ‘entities’ and the connections between them, allowing an investigator to see and explore relationships in their source data. For maximum impact, each entity in the network diagram should have an
The purpose of this blog post is to demonstrate a SAS coding technique that allows for calculations with multiple variables across a SAS dataset, whether or not their values belong to the same or different observations. We are going to use values from multiple observations in a calculation. What do

When loading data into CAS using PROC CASUTIL, you have two choices on how the table can be loaded: session-scope or global-scope. This is controlled by the PROMOTE option in the PROC CASUTIL statement. Session-scope loaded proc casutil; load casdata="model_table.sas7bdat" incaslib="ryloll" outcaslib="otcaslib" casout="model_table”; run; Global-scope loaded proc casutil; load casdata="model_table.sas7bdat"

The new site is organized in a new way, search
There are many compelling reasons existing SAS users might want to start integrating SAS Viya into their SAS9 programs and applications. For me, it comes down to ease-of-use, speed, and faster time-to-value. With the ability to traverse the (necessarily iterative) analytics lifecycle faster than before, we are now able to generate
