weighing variables for cluster analysis
Hello SAS Gurus:
I am in the process of clustering few entities (stores) based on a
number of variables (like area, sales, growth etc.). I am implementing
Proc FASTCLUS for this purpose.
We have a requirement that all variables are not of equal importance.
Depending on the problem, we may need to give more importance to
certain variables over others (say sales over other variables). Can you
suggest any approach for this?
Thanks very much for your help,

Description: Random errors (failed connection)
This bug is tested against pgsql 7.4.1 and 7.4.6 using openssl 0.9.7c and
It took me about 6 hours and a lot of compiles and step-by-step tracing to
figure it out.

If you want to use VO 2.7 with Advantage Database Server you have to
upgrade Advantage Database Server to version 7.0 or greater.

Your Oracle database is down. Contact the Oracle DBA at your firm and make them aware of the problem. You may also want to get on the distribution list of for news regarding the database. It may be down because the DBA is performing routine maintenance.

I've seen in previous posts that recommended practice for database backup is
to run the dump utility twice. Once for schema only and a second time for
data only (I think). Up to know, I've only ever dumped both, and have never
had a problem restoring into older/newer versions of postgres, nor with
restoring into other commercial versions of postgres. This is a testament
of the robustness of pg_dump! Of course, there are always a series of error
messages at the start of each restore when duplicate/unknown template DB
