hash support, but FCMP and ODS/Proc Template improvements undoubtedly make a
huge difference to many folks.

The difference between Europeans and Americans is that Europeans think 100 miles is a long distance, and Americans think 100 years is a long time.

I can't quote exact figures but over the past few years, stories on S.I.
have always stated that turn over is low compared to other firms. Of
course, that does not mean that workers don't leave -- a number of folks on
this list are former employees. The article that Ken mentioned said that
the Institute was probably going to add 1-2% headcount this year which
implies that they are not leaving jobs vacant.

Please respond to
Depends on what the size of SAS is (not sure, but I imagine I could find

replacing all staff who leave - there are 26 jobs there now, anyone know
many there are in less turbulent economic times?

That is correct -- Phase 2 updates the "Foundation" products (Base SAS, SAS=

roducts must be completely reinstalled going from Phase 1 to Phase 2.

I am not sure that the SI Tech Support examples should have all the error
checking that Chang wanted to throw in the macro. The examples should be
clear concise and easy to read and get going, as well as be illistrative.
Too much error checking in an example well is just over kill and even
detrimental to an example. However, any code solution on the SI Tech
Support web sit should follow basic rules of good practices and sound
advice. Such as with thier macros having atleast a somewhat good Macro
