Hi, Igor,

SAS releases 8.2, 8.02, and 8e refer to the same thing Release 8.2
(TS2M0), at least on Windows platform and likely so in other platforms.

It seems an outcome of the development and marketing not in sync -- which
is much frequent happening in the industry. Like Java 2 is in fact Java
1.2 and above, ms office xp is the same as ms office 2002, which includes
nothing but word 10 and excel 10, ...

For SAS release 9, fortunately, things are much in sync. I know there have
been releases 9.0, 9.1, 9.1.2, and 9.1.3 so far for Windows platform.

No "9 the Big One", nor "SAS BT -- Break Through edition", nor "SaS - the
Superior Software", nor "SAS PK -- Power to Know", nor "SAS PS -- the
Pretty Solutions", nor "SAS NHB -- No Head-Banging," ... :-)

Re: SAS 8.2 and XML UTF-8 #2
It depends on the XML complexity. For simple XML files which have elements 1 level deep, SAS can read them in easily using a libname statement: libname indata xml "c:\temp\mydata.xml" ; For more complex XML, you need to use a SAS tool called XML Mapper and map the elements and attributes to the right columns. If you don't want to go through all of those issues immediately, I built a tool awhile back that will convert XML to delimited files which SAS can then read in. It can be found here: http://savian.net/Utilities.aspx Alan Churchill Savian "Bridging SAS and Microsoft Technologies" www.savian.net -----Original Message----- From: SAS(r) Discussion [mailto:SAS-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU] On Behalf Of Susie Li Sent: Thursday, October 06, 2005 8:06 AM To: SAS-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Subject: Re: SAS 8.2 and XML UTF-8 On the same topic, since I'm new to XML, and we are also receiving XML files from the web, I wonder if anyone on the list can tell me how SAS (I have v9) can easily read in such files.

Re: SAS 8.2 #2
I'm stunned ! A suitable pc for running SAS9 (in UK !) costs less than base SAS for one year, and perhaps is below the cost of one add-on module like SAS/Graph or SAS/Access to PC File Formats. So why not buy a suitable PC and get the latest SAS ? If that hardware outlay is steep, get the interim solution of SAS/Learning Edition 2 for the first year. It seems a financially easier direction than becoming adept in the out-of-date SAS8.2 release - - - IMHO You cannot run SAS on a zero budget. Of course, SAS Institute might break its habits and allow you to have the software for nothing (?) I don't think so ! We have the benefit of superior software (SAS) because they invest licence revenue through research and development - to improve the products. How good would it become if that R&D was eroded by rip-off licence abuse ?

It is not the VIEW that has an influence on deleting the old data. I would think that having the 24 indexed data sets might be about as good as having the giant data set. I would think the indexes could be used while accessing the data through views. Where's that guy that says he knows everything about using indexed data sets?

Re: SAS 8.2 under WinXP #2

Re: SAS Advanced Programming Exam for SAS 9: SAS Joke of the year. #2
jontugman, Test preparation is akin to following a simple algorithm: 1. Evaluate the test and discover if it is worth taking. 2. If #1 evaluates false then go to exit. 3. Determine if your *test* knowledge of SAS is insufficient. 4. If #3 evaluates true, do the test preparation. 5. Pay the money. 6. Take the test. 7 Exit. From your standpoint, the step of paramount importance is step #1. That is where you mainly failed. From SAS' standpoint, only one step matters: #5. This is the only reason the test was created in the first place. The world would be a better place if all employers understood that as well. However, some recruiters/HRers require the certificate as a CYA backup should they accidentally hire a pure test-passer. Fortunately, I have not seen many occurrences of this nature since the inception of the boondoggle, perhaps because most candidates are almost inevitably interviewed by people qualified in SAS better than HR. And most qualified people saw the program for what it is even before its advent. SAS-L is replete with numerous posts to prove it. Needless to say, it does not imply in any way that any certificate-holder has no more SAS behind the belt than the certificate can cover. Far from that! Many fantastic real-world people have been forced into the thing by their SAS partnership business needs, many have taken it just for the heck of it because their employer would pay for it, etc. My opposition to the thing as a matter of principle is based on t...
