SAS Fundamentals - Part 2

This course builds on the subjects taught in the 3-day course 'SAS Fundamentals - Part 1'. Multiple scenarios for building reports are compared based on more specialised procedures, more intelligent code and specialised SAS Base features. The course content is based on a selection of SAS coding techniques for reporting that are very often used by most companies that implement the SAS product. .

This course is also available for exclusive, one-company presentations.
