Hash objects, an efficient look-up tool in the SAS DATA step, are object-oriented programming structures that function differently from traditional SAS language statements. Michele Burlew's SAS Hash Object Programming Made Easy shows readers how to use these powerful features, which they can program to quickly look up and manage data and to conserve computing resources. SAS provides various look-up techniques, and hash objects are among the newest, so therefore many users may not have yet used them. Because the examples presented vary in complexity, SAS Hash Object Programming Made Easy is useful to SAS users of all experience levels, from novice programmer to advanced programmer. Novice programmers can adapt some of the simpler hash programming techniques as they develop their SAS programming skills. This book helps more experienced programmers learn how to take advantage of hash object programming by comparing traditional processing techniques to those that use hash objects. Additionally, users from diverse fields with different requirements can adapt the examples in SAS Hash Object Programming Made Easy to fit their unique situations. This book is part of the SAS Press program.

Incorporating broad coverage of the best ODS features in one book, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond goes beyond Lauren Haworth's original ODS text to demonstrate the many new and enhanced features of ODS and SAS 9.2. With SAS 9.2, ODS provides a myriad of choices for reporting and displaying analytical results with a greater variety of formatting selections and output destinations. As experienced SAS users, Lauren E. Haworth, Cynthia L. Zender, and Michele M. Burlew know how important it is to be able to produce customized output in different formats to meet the needs of clients. Geared toward all levels of SAS users, Output Delivery System: The Basics and Beyond is an example-driven book that presents each of the wide array of ODS techniques in an easy-to-use, two-page layout, with the text and code on one page and the resulting output on the facing page. The book begins with basic syntax and progresses to more complex techniques and custom styles. You will learn to take basic SAS output and transform it into an HTML page, a word-processor-friendly RTF file, or printer-friendly PDF output. You'll learn how to generate a table of contents page for RTF and PDF files, generate bookmarks for PDF files, and generate custom page numbering for those destinations. You will also learn the basic concepts of changing style templates, using table templates with the DATA step, and using tagset templates to generate custom markup language tags and output. Other new features of ODS are also discussed, such as the ODS Graphics Framework and the new ODS Statistical Graphics procedures.

Hash tables can do a lot more than you might think! Data Management Solutions Using SAS Hash Table Operations: A Business Intelligence Case Study concentrates on solving your challenging data management and analysis problems via the power of the SAS hash object, whose environment and tools make it possible to create complete dynamic solutions. To this end, this book provides an in-depth overview of the hash table as an in-memory database with the CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete) cycle rendered by the hash object tools. By using this concept and focusing on real-world problems exemplified by sports data sets and statistics, this book seeks to help you take advantage of the hash object productively, in particular, but not limited to, the following tasks: select proper hash tools to perform hash table operations use proper hash table operations to support specific data management tasks use the dynamic, run-time nature of hash object programming understand the algorithmic principles behind hash table data look-up, retrieval, and aggregation learn how to perform data aggregation, for which the hash object is exceptionally well suited manage the hash table memory footprint, especially when processing big data use hash object techniques for other data processing tasks, such as filtering, combining, splitting, sorting, and unduplicating. Using this book, you will be able to answer your toughest questions quickly and in the most efficient way possible!

The issue facing most SAS programmers today is not that data space has become bigger ("Big Data" ), but that our programming problem space has become bigger. Through the power of DS2, this book shows programmers how easily they can manage complex problems using modular coding techniques. The DS2 Procedure: SAS Programming Methods at Work outlines the basic structure of a DS2 program and teaches you how each component can help you address problems. The DS2 programming language in SAS 9.4 simplifies and speeds data preparation with user-defined methods, storing methods and attributes in shareable packages, and threaded execution on multicore symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) and massively parallel processing (MPP) machines. This book is intended for all BASE SAS programmers looking to learn about DS2; readers need only an introductory level of SAS to get started. Topics covered include introductions to Object Oriented Programming methods, DATA step programs, user-defined methods, predefined packages, and threaded processing.

Enhance your SAS data-wrangling skills with high-precision and parallel data manipulation using the DS2 programming language. Now in its second edition, this book addresses the DS2 programming language from SAS, which combines the precise procedural power and control of the Base SAS DATA step language with the simplicity and flexibility of SQL. DS2 provides simple, safe syntax for performing complex data transformations in parallel and enables manipulation of native database data types at full precision. It also covers PROC FEDSQL, a modernized SQL language that blends perfectly with DS2. You will learn to harness the power of parallel processing to speed up CPU-intensive computing processes in Base SAS and how to achieve even more speed by processing DS2 programs on massively parallel database systems. Techniques for leveraging internet APIs to acquire data, avoiding large data movements when working with data from disparate sources, and leveraging DS2's new data types for full-precision numeric calculations are presented, with examples of why these techniques are essential for the modern data wrangler. Here's what's new in this edition: how to significantly improve performance by using the new SAS Viya architecture with its SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS) how to declare private variables and methods in a package the new PROC DSTODS2 the PCRXFIND and PCRXREPLACE packages While working though the code samples provided with this book, you will build a library of custom, reusable, and easily shareable DS2 program modules, execute parallelized DATA step programs to speed up a CPU-intensive process, and conduct advanced data transformations using hash objects and matrix math operations. This book is part of the SAS Press Series.
