Accurate data entry and analysis can be deceptively labor-intensive and time-consuming. Creating and Verifying Data Sets with Excel is a focused, easy-to-read guide that gives readers the wherewithal to make use of a remarkable set of data tools tucked within Excel—tools most researchers are entirely unaware of. Robert E. McGrath’s book is the first to focus exclusively on Excel as a data entry system. It incorporates a number of learning tools such as screenshots, text boxes that summarize key points, examples from across the social sciences, tips for creating professional-looking tables, and questions at the end of each chapter. Providing practical strategies to improve and ease the processes of data entry, creation and analysis, this step-by-step guide is a brief, but invaluable resource for both students and researchers. "I have been messing around with data for over 40 years, and I still learned useful techniques and tricks from this book. It will be invaluable for everyone doing data analysis, from novices to experts. I highly recommend it." —David L. Streiner, McMaster University “Excel has become a standard tool in the modern workplace. This well-written and accessible book covers foundational Excel data skills that are rarely taught directly in quantitative methods classes, but are essential for anyone who aspires to succeed in a data-driven environment.” —Kurt Taylor Gaubatz, Old Dominion University

Master simple-to-complex techniques for transporting and managing data between SAS and Excel William Benjamin's Exchanging Data between SAS and Microsoft Excel: Tips and Techniques to Transfer and Manage Data More Efficiently describes many of the options and methods that enable a SAS programmer to transport data between SAS and Excel. The book includes examples that all levels of SAS and Excel users can apply to their everyday programming tasks. Because the book makes no assumptions about the skill levels of either SAS or Excel users, it has a wide-ranging application, providing detailed instructions about how to apply the techniques shown. It contains sections that gather instructional and syntactical information together that are otherwise widely dispersed, and it provides detailed examples about how to apply the software to everyday applications. These examples enable novice users and power developers alike the chance to expand their capabilities and enhance their skillsets. By moving from simple-to-complex applications and examples, the layout of the book allows it to be used as both a training and a reference tool. Excel users and SAS programmers are presented with tools that will assist in the integration of SAS and Excel processes in order to automate reporting and programming interfaces. This enables programming staff to request their own reports or processes and, in turn, support a much larger community.
