> What are the different data types in Base SAS and SAS SQL??
character, lengths from 1 to 32,000+
numeric: lengths from 2 to 8
dates are a subtype of numeric
and are identified by their date, datetime, or time formats
the new proc TSPL (Table Server Processing Language)
supports ANSI data types: bigint, tinyint, etc.
